Stirling Albion announce Greig McDonald as permanent boss
The 29-year-old will remain in charge of the Second Division club until the end of the season.
Stirling Albion have confirmed Greig McDonald as the club’s permanent manager until the end of the season.
The experienced defender initially took the reins after Jocky Scott’s departure in December.
However after guiding the club to two wins in his first three matches as boss the club’s executive board have extended the deal until May.
At 29, McDonald is the youngest manager in the senior Scottish game.
The Binos beat Stenhousemuir and Albion Rovers before Saturday’s defeat to McDonald’s former club East Fife.
The defeat saw the club fall to the foot of the Second Division table but they have played several matches less than their rivals.
Stirling’s operations director Stuart Brown said: “On behalf of the Executive Board of Stirling Albion FC, I am delighted to announce that we have unanimously agreed to appoint Greig McDonald as Manager for the remainder of the season.
“Greig will be supported, as he has been since taking over as interim manager at the beginning of December last year, by his fellow senior players, Shaun Fagan and Marc McCulloch.
“Whilst the improvement in results since Greig took over obviously played a major part in reaching our decision, we also took into account the behind scenes work that Greig, Shaun and Marc have tirelessly undertaken.
"The mood in the dressing room is fantastic with every one of the playing squad 100% behind their “new” Management Team.
“We do not feel the need to set Greig any specific targets. He – and indeed everyone at the Club – knows exactly what is required, without having to be prompted from the Boardroom.”
