Mixu Paatelainen has been named as the new manager of Dundee United.
The 48-year-old returns to Scottish football following a spell in charge of the Finland national team.
Paatelainen played 133 times for the Tangerines between 1987 and 1992 before moving north to Aberdeen.
He also had spells in charge of Hibernian, Kilmarnock, and Cowdenbeath before returning to his homeland to take charge of the national side.
The Finn, who was named amongst the favourites to take over the job when Jackie McNamara left the club last month, has signed a deal until June 2018.
Inverness boss John Hughes and St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright were also linked with the post.
Chairman Stephen Thompson said: “I am delighted to welcome Mixu back to the Club as our new Head Coach.
“He served United with distinction as a player and will do the same as a manager.
“His desire to come back to the Club was clear from the first minute we spoke. He was the first person we spoke to and also the last.
“His experience combined with his vision and enthusiasm for the club made him the standout candidate and we are thrilled to announce his appointment.”
