Rowan Alexander has returned to Raydale Park as the new manager of Lowland League side Gretna 2008.

He led Gretna's previous incarnation from the bottom tier to top flight, and a Scottish Cup final, before the club's financial collapse in 2008.

Alexander, who ended his player career at Gretna, was sacked in November 2007 after seven years in charge.

The 58-year-old has been appointed for the rest of the season with Gretna 2008 third bottom of the Lowland League.
