Middlesbrough bring in Mowbray

LONDON - Tony Mowbray has been appointed as Gordon Strachan's successor for the second time in 14 months after Middlesbrough made him manager on Tuesday, the Championship club said on their website.

Mowbray, who replaced Strachan at Celtic last year and left in March, made more than 400 league appearances for the north-east England club who were relegated from the top flight in 2009 under Gareth Southgate.
