Bradford City appoint former Rangers boss as manager

Bradford City have found a replacement for Phil Parkinson who left for Bolton Wanderers recently after naming Stuart McCall as their new manager on a two-year deal. McCall has returned to Valley Parade for a second spell at the helm, having previously taken charge of the Bantams between 2007 and 2010..

Bradford had been linked with the likes of Uwe Rosler and Paul Lambert, but in the end have opted for one of their own in McCall, who had been working in an assistant role to Gordon Strachan with Scotland. The Scot's last spell in the dugout was with Rangers at the end of the 2014/15 season, while he previously spent four years in charge of Motherwell.

Bradford missed out in the play-offs last season and will be expected by many to be thereabouts again given that they have one of the largest fan bases in League 1.
