Scott Booth: Names new Stenhousemuir manager

The Scotland Under-17s coach will take charge of the League One side at the start of next month after winning the race to succeed Martyn Corrigan.

Chairman Bill Darroch told the club's official website: "We received a number of high quality applications for the job and the board felt that Scott had the right approach and the right mix of attributes that best meets the vision and aspirations of Stenhousemuir Football Club.

"We believe that the attributes he brings as a former player with considerable professional playing experience, coupled with his passion for youth development, will be a perfect fit for Stenhousemuir."

Booth added: "Everyone in Scottish football knows that Stenhousemuir is a modern, progressive club with big ideas on moving the game forward in Scotland.

"Be it their award-winning community programme, or their new youth academy concept, Stenhousemuir is a club that often leads the way in developing the game.

"I am looking forward to being part of the club and doing my bit to take the club forward."

Interim coaching team Brown Ferguson, Robert Glen, David Rowson, Ross McMillan and Scot Buist will continue in charge for the matches against Rangers, Airdrie and Forfar before Booth takes control.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
