Former Ipswich Town assistant boss Stuart Taylor has been named head coach of Scottish club Hamilton Academical.

Taylor, who assisted Paul Lambert during his underwhelming reign at Portman Road, is a former player and assistant at the Scottish Championship side.

Speaking to the club’s website, he said: “I am delighted to be back at this great club, I have had many fantastic memories during my first time here and to now have the privilege to sit here as the club’s new head coach is a real honour for me.

“I am a coach who loves working with players and improving them. This club is well known throughout Britain for doing that and I feel coming here as a coach is a good fit.

“I have had some great conversations with Allan and the rest of the board. I would like to thank them for showing faith in me for this position and I look forward to working with them.”
