Le Guen returns to coach at PSG
Paul Le Guen left Rangers after just seven months
Le Guen was not a success at Rangers
Former Rangers manager Paul Le Guen is the new coach at struggling Paris St Germain, taking over from Guy Lacombe.

Le Guen's unhappy Ibrox reign lasted just seven months, with the ex-Lyon boss leaving Glasgow on 4 January.

Paris St Germain have slumped to 17th place in Ligue 1, picking up 19 points from their opening 19 games.

Le Guen won three consecutive league titles with Lyon before taking a year out of the game. But he struggled to make a positive impact in Scotland.

The 42-year-old Le Guen, a former midfielder with PSG, was in charge at Ibrox for seven months and 31 games - the shortest reign in the club's history.

He left the club trailing Premier League leaders Celtic by 17 points and out of the CIS Cup, following a home defeat to First Division St Johnstone.

Rangers have since crashed out of the Scottish Cup but persuaded Walter Smith to leave Scotland and return to Ibrox for a second stint as manager.

Le Guen's assistant at Lyon and Rangers, Yves Colleu, also makes the move to the Parc des Princes.

Lacombe, who took over from Laurent Fournier in December 2005, was asked to step down after the 2-1 home defeat to 10-man Valenciennes on Saturday.
