Russell Slade, who was a fans' favourite at Boro, has been appointed as new Coventry City boss

Slade, who managed Boro between 2001-2004, left Charlton Athletic recently, after spells with Cardiff City, Leyton Orient, Brighton, Yeovil and Grimsby Town.

The Sky Blues are languishing second-from-bottom in League One, former boss Tony Mowbray resigned recently, before Mark Venus had a spell in temporary charge.

Slade famously led Boro to their infamous FA Cup third round clash against Chelsea at the McCain Stadium
