Kevin Harper is staying on for another season as manager of Albion Rovers, the League Two club has confirmed.

In November, the 43-year-old became the first black, Asian or minority ethnic boss at a Scottish club in 15 years.

The former Hibs, Derby and Portsmouth forward started with a run of 12 games without a victory.

However, the Coatbridge side won five of their last nine fixtures to leapfrog Berwick Rangers at the foot of the table.

Following a 1-1 draw at home to Berwick on 2 March, Rovers were seven points adrift but went on to finish eight points clear in ninth place.

Joe McLaughlin has also agreed to extend his terms as assistant manager at Cliftonhill.
