Transition of counter attacks – Issue 21 (April 2012)
Mark McGhee joined Bristol Rovers in January 2012.
A highly experienced manager, the Scot’s first coaching appointment came at Reading in 1991, where he secured the League One title, before spells at Leicester City and Wolves.
After a spell out of the game, he clinched more League One honours, this time earning Millwall the plaudits. And his home-grown side almost repeated the trick the following year, unluckily beaten in the end-of-season playoffs by Birmingham City, with the Premier League beckoning.
McGhee moved on to Brighton and Hove Albion in 2003, for whom he won promotion to the Championship, before successful spells in Scotland with Motherwell and Aberdeen.
He returned to England this year to take charge of Bristol Rovers, immediately pulling the Pirates clear of the npower League Two drop places.
As a player, McGhee was a rampaging striker, who appeared for the likes of Aberdeen, Celtic, Newcastle United and Hamburg.
