Alex McCleish is now the new football manager of Aston Villa, after recently resigning from his role as Birmingham boss.
The 52-year-old started his managerial career in 1994 at Motherwell, guiding the club to a second place finish behind Rangers.
Aston Villa's decision to appoint McCleish may prove to be divisive among the club's fans due to his past connection with their fiercest rivals.
Commenting on his appointment, McCleish said: "I am honoured to have this opportunity to manage a club with such a fantastic history as Aston Villa's.
"The heritage, the history of success and the tradition of Aston Villa are compelling and irresistible. The challenge for me is to try to add my own chapter."
McCleish commented on the potential hostility of the club's fans, saying that he will need to convince them of his worth as manager.
Meanwhile, Birmingham City have affirmed their intentions to take legal action over McCleish's resignation.
