Alex Rae: Paul Ince adds Scot to Blackpool coaching staff

New Blackpool manager Paul Ince has added Alex Rae to his coaching staff.

The 43-year-old, who had been working as chief scout at MK Dons, played with Ince at Wolves and then served under him at the Dons and Notts County.

Ince told BBC Radio Lancashire: "He's got a vast amount of knowledge, which he can lend to the players and the rest of the staff. He's now part of the team alongside 'Tommo' (Steve Thompson)."

Ince's first game in charge ended in a 2-0 defeat at Leeds on Wednesday.

Rae enjoyed a successful playing career, featuring in the Premier League with Sunderland and Wolves and later winning the Scottish Premier League with Rangers.

He also had a two-year spell as player-manager of Dundee.
