Rams Appoint Rowett

14th March 2017

Derby County have appointed Gary Rowett as their new manager, until the end of the 2018/19 season following the sacking of Steve McLaren on Sunday night.

Rowett's first game in charge is the East Midlands Derby against Nottingham Forest on Saturday at The City Ground as Derby will be hoping to inflict a second defeat of the season on their bitter rivals.

Their have been backroom changes as well with Kevin Summerfield coming in as Assistant Manager, Mark Sale as First Team Coach, former Rams keeper Kevin Poole as Goalie Coach and Joe Carnall as Head of Performance Analysis. First Team Coach Kevin Phillips will remain part of the coaching team.


Rowett played 120 games in the Rams defence during a 3 year stay at the club, where he was part of the side that won promotion to the top division in 1996.

Rams fans will be hoping Rowett still has that winning feeling to get them back to the Premier League, starting at the weekend, with a win away at Nottingham Forest who themselves look to be lining up former Rangers boss Mark Warburton to take over managerial duties.
