EX-CELT IS NEW WIGAN BOSS

0

FORMER Celtic skipper Gary Caldwell has been named the new manager of Championship strugglers Wigan.

The Latics have moved quickly to name a replacememt for another ex-Celt, Malky Mackay, who was fired on Monday night after a 2-0 loss at home to Derby left 23rd-placed Wigan eight points from safety with just five games remaining.

And they have turned to 32-year-old Caldwell, who lifted the FA Cup when the club triumphed in 2013 and he has signed what the club are describing as a “permanent contract”.

Centre-back Caldwell has 55 Scotland caps and has made 111 appearances for Wigan since joining in 2010 from the Hoops, but a hip injury halted his playing career earlier this season.
