Lee McCulloch has been confirmed as Dundee United’s first team strikers’ coach.
The new role has been created at head coach Robbie Neilson’s request, with the former Kilmarnock boss appointed until the end of the season.
McCulloch scored 52 goals for Rangers in a seven-year spell at the club.
Neilson said: “When I came to the club, I stated that I wanted a strikers’ coach working alongside me.
“Lee has considerable experience at the various levels both within the domestic game and further afield, and I am delighted we have brought him in.
“As the role suggests he will focus primarily on work with the strikers, and he is an excellent addition to the coaching set-up here at Dundee United.”
McCulloch said: “I am excited to be at Dundee United, working with Robbie Neilson. The club has very ambitious plans, and the first step in those plans is promotion to the Premiership.
“I am looking forward to getting back on the training field and working with the strikers and helping United achieve success.”
With 31, United have scored the fewest goals of any of the top four Championship sides this season and have the worst goal difference in the top half of the table at only +2.
