Tony Mowbray: Blackburn Rovers appoint Owen Coyle replacement

Championship strugglers Blackburn Rovers have appointed Tony Mowbray as their new head coach, a day after Owen Coyle left the club by mutual consent.

The 53-year-old was last in charge of League One side Coventry and has previously been boss of Middlesbrough, Celtic, West Brom and Hibernian.

He takes over a Rovers side 23rd in the table, three points from safety with 15 games remaining this season.

Mowbray's first match in charge will be at Burton Albion on Friday.
