Blackburn Rovers have appointed Wolves goalkeeping coach Bobby Mimms in a similar role.

He replaces Eric Steele, who is expected to take on an identical role with Manchester United.

Mimms made over 150 appearances for Rovers from 1990 to 1996 and eventually lost his place to Tim Flowers.

The 44-year-old joined the Midlands side as goalkeeping coach in 2001 and was present when his current employers visited for a pre-season friendly.
