Dundee United have confirmed two off-field appointments in the wake of the club’s recent takeover.
As expected, Tony Asghar will be United’s first ever Sporting Director.
And the Tangerines have also recruited Malachy Brannigan as Managing Director.
Both men start work on Monday.
Asghar has extensive experience in sports consultancy and will work closely with head coach Robbie Neilson to “oversee the structure of United’s football department”, according to a club statement.
Brannigan has previously been a managing director in the English Championship with Derby County and Sheffield United, and was most recently the Chief Executive of League of Ireland champions Dundalk.
The United statement detailed his role by explaining: “While he assumes overall control of the club’s affairs, his main focus will be on the business side of the organisation.”
