James McPake waves to the fans.

Dundee have formally confirmed that James McPake has been appointed the club’s new manager with the experienced Jimmy Nicholl coming in as his assistant.

The 34-year-old former defender has won the race to succeed Jim McIntyre in the Dens hot-seat, seeing off fierce competition from a lengthy list of candidates to secure the role.

McPake was a player at Dens until his career was ended by serious injury during a derby with United in 2016.

Since then, he has helped out at the club in a coaching role and was named interim boss for the last game of the season following Jim McIntyre’s sacking.

Now, he will take charge of the team on a permanent basis.

Nicholl, who’s 62, has a wealth of experience and has managed at Raith Rovers, Millwall and Cowdenbeath.

He worked as a coach at St Mirren last season and is the current assistant manager with the Northern Ireland national side.

The new Dundee management duo have signed rolling contracts with the club.
