Jack Ross: St Mirren appoint Alloa Athletic boss as manager

Jack Ross

Ross signed a new contract with Alloa this summer

Scottish Championship club St Mirren have appointed Jack Ross as their new manager.

The 40-year-old, who is leaving League One outfit Alloa Athletic, will be introduced to the media on Wednesday.

Ross was appointed manager by Alloa in December 2015.

Although he was unable to prevent their relegation from the Championship, Ross signed a new one-year contract this summer and they presently sit in third place.

The Buddies, who sit bottom of their table, sacked former Scotland midfielder Alex Rae earlier this month.

Ross, whose Alloa side won their first 10 games of the season, was a full-back with Clyde, Hartlepool United, Falkirk, St Mirren and Hamilton Academical.

He started his coaching career as assistant manager at Dumbarton before taking over the development team at Hearts.
