McIntyre given task of Dundee revival

Dundee have appointed Jim McIntyre as their new manager in a bid to help them climb off the bottom of the Scottish Premiership table, the club announced Wednesday.

The former Ross County boss succeeds Neil McCann, who left the Tayside club on Tuesday.

McIntyre, 46, has signed a one-year rolling contract.

He also had spells as manager of both Dunfermline and Queen of the South, winning promotion to the top flight with the Pars in his first job in management in 2011.

McIntyre moved to Ross County in 2014 and led them to their first major trophy with a League Cup win in the 2015/16 season.
