Partick Thistle have appointed Kris Doolan to the role of first team manager following his caretaker spell in charge.

Doolan was asked to take control of the side following the surprise departure of Ian McCall and his backroom staff following the Scottish Cup defeat to Rangers at Ibrox last month.

During his interim spell in the dugout Doolan has guided the team to away wins over Dundee and Ayr United, as well as a draw at Arbroath.

He has now been rewarded with the position on a permanent basis.

Doolan stepped up from his position as Under-18s manager at the club but is a Jags legend from his playing career.

The former striker played at Firhill from 2009 to 2019, making 401 appearances for the club and becoming Thistle’s record league goalscorer with 107 goals.

Dollan’s now faces the challenge of trying to win promotion to the top flight, with the team currently in fifth place in the table, seven points behind leaders Queen’s Park.
