Former Premier League manager is appointed by the National League's BOTTOM CLUB until the end of season, as he seeks to 'sink his teeth' into relegation battle

A former Premier League manager has been appointed by the bottom-placed club in England's fifth tier.

Kidderminster Harriers have bagged themselves relative dugout royalty as they look to avoid relegation from the National League.

The Worcestershire outfit are seven points off safety but describe their new man as someone who has a 'proven track record of delivering against the odds when required.'

He formerly managed Hull City, overseeing their first promotion to the Premier League and keeping them there for a season before being sacked the year they went down.

Kidderminster are the ninth club he has managed and his career has taken him to places as exotic as Barrow, Bolton, and Hyderabad in India.
