Cliff Byrne: Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann appoints new assistant manager
New Doncaster Rovers manager Grant McCann has appointed former Scunthorpe United team-mate Cliff Byrne as his assistant boss.
The 36-year-old has left his role working at the Sunderland academy to link up with McCann, who took over at the League One club on Wednesday.
"Myself and Grant have a close bond," Byrne told the Doncaster website.
"We share the same outlook on the game in how we want to go about things and it is a fantastic opportunity for me."
