Milton Keynes Dons have announced that former Brentford boss Martin Allen is their new manager.
Allen had been in charge of Brentford for just over two years
Allen, who has also managed Barnet, resigned after taking Brentford to the League One play-off semi-finals for the second successive year.
The Dons have been without a boss since the departure of Danny Wilson last month after their relegation to League Two on the final day of the season.
Wilson had kept the club up in 2004/05 but could not repeat the feat in May.
Six people were shortlisted for the job from 100 applicants.
