Brown takes over at Dens Park
John Brown has been named the interim manager of SPL club Dundee.
He replaces Barry Smith who was sacked earlier this week, with the Dark Blues sitting 15 points adrift at the base of the table.
A statement on the club's website reads: "Having been inundated by high calibre candidates over the last few days, one man stood out as perfect for the position of interim manager of Dundee FC.
"John Brown is a man with real heritage and history at Dundee FC and when at Dens Park in his time as a player, he was a real inspiration, a fans' favourite and scored some vital goals and he has never lost his feelings for the club."
As a player with Rangers he won six league titles, and was also a member of the coaching staff at Ibrox.
