December 30th 2019: Alex Dyer says "it is a privilege" to be named Kilmarnock manager until the end of the season after replacing Angelo Alessio.
Alessio was sacked earlier this month, having overseen just 22 matches.
Dyer, 54, was Steve Clarke's assistant as the Scotland boss led Kilmarnock to successive record Scottish Premiership points hauls in 2018 and 2019.
They finished fifth and third, respectively, and Dyer has continued to work with Clarke as part of the Scotland set-up.
The former Blackpool defender has coached under Avram Grant, Sam Allardyce, Eddie Gray and Steve Coppell but his only previous experience as a manager came during a five-game stint at English non-league outfit Welling United in 2017.

Alex Said On His Appointment: "I care deeply about this fantastic football club. I believe we have a good group of players at the club and with a few additions during the transfer window then I'm convinced we can rejuvenate our season and re-establish the identity the club has built over the past few years."
Billy Bowie added: "Alex is hugely respected by everyone at the club and we believe he is capable of ensuring the club moves forward in the right direction again. I'm sure our fans will join us in giving their full support to Alex for the remainder of the season."
