George Burley to manage Crystal Palace

Good news for George Burley. The ex-Scotland coach is to be the new coach for London team Crystal Palace.

Sacked in Novemeber 2009 for poor team performance and failure to qualify for the World Cup finals, Burley has been out of work for the past seven months. Now Crystal Palace, who only just escaped relegation on the last day of the English league season have given Burley a route back into the game.

Burley will be assisted by another Scotsman and Crystal Palace legend Dougie Freedman, who was previously regarded as a likely candidate for the role.
