Former Rangers striker and Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch has joined Dundee United as part of Robbie Neilson’s backroom staff.
The 40-year-old has been out of work since leaving the assistant manager’s job at Lechia Gdansk in Poland and had been linked with a return to first club Motherwell as U/20s boss.
But McCulloch has signed up at Tannadice to join the Mark Ogren revolution to assist manager Robbie Neilson.
Last week, the Tangerines appointed Gordon Forrest as assistant manager and he’s set to be joined by McCulloch as first-team technical coach.
Also set to join United behind the scenes could be former St Johnstone and Partick Thistle midfield man David Byrne as head of recruitment.
The 57-year-old Englishman was chief scout at Hartlepool United until May last year and has previously worked for Swindon Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Yeovil Town.
At Swindon he was assistant to Tannadice legend Paul Sturrock, who has been working with United as their chief scout in England.
Byrne subsequently worked under Sturrock’s successor at Swindon, another with a big United history, Maurice Malpas.
