Bonnyrigg Rose have announced former Musselburgh boss Davie McGlynn as their new manager following Max Christie’s recent resignation.

The club announced the news on Sunday with the new man expected to take his first training session on Tuesday evening.

Max Christie resigned on August 30 after three years in charge at New Dundas Park.

Steven Hislop, David White and Ross Archibald took temporary charge in the interim period, guiding the side to two wins out of two.

But now the club will move forward with former Musselburgh Athletic manager Davie McGlynn, nephew of former Hearts and now Livingston manager John McGlynn.

McGlynn had resigned from Musselburgh the previous weekend after just under 10 years in charge at Olivebank, where his father Charlie is chairman. During his time at Musselburgh he guided the East Lothian club to the Scottish Junior Cup final in 2011 and the Premier League title in 2009.
