First Division Airdrie United have appointed veteran striker Owen Coyle their assistant manager.

He takes over from Kenny Black, who moved to Leicester City.

Airdrie chairman Jim Ballantyne told his club's website: "There was only one person that the manager wished to bring in and that was Owen Coyle.

"Owen has a wealth of experience from working with other clubs and he was also co-manager at Falkirk a couple of seasons ago when they won the title"

Coyle had left Falkirk for Dundee United but then joined Airdrie for the third time in his career on loan before joining permanently after the winning of promotion from Division Two.

He had been coaching United's Under-21 side.

The 38-year-old has great experience, having started his career at Dumbarton and also playing for Clydebank, Airdrieonians, Bolton Wanderers, Dundee United, Motherwell, Dunfermline Athletic, Ross County and the Republic of Ireland.
