Bradford City confirmed on their official website on Monday that they have re-appointed Stuart McCall as the club's manager for the second time.

McCall, 52, was a Bradford legend during his playing days, starting his playing career with the Bantams and making 268 appearances before heading off to Everton and Rangers.

In 1998 though, McCall returned to Bradford as captain, and racked up another 175 appearances for the club as he helped Bradford win promotion to the Premier League in 1999, before eventually becoming the club's caretaker manager just a year later.

A full stint in charge arrived in 2007, and after less than three years in charge he headed up to Scotland with Motherwell before an emotional return to Rangers last summer.

Now, McCall is back in management - and he'll have the very familiar surroundings of Valley Parade once again. After Phil Parkinson's departure to Bolton Wanderers, McCall has been brought back to Bradford as they look to build on last season's play-off appearance.

A year after being replaced by Mark Warburton at Rangers, McCall - who had been assisting Gordon Strachan with Scotland - is back in work, and his former club have sent him a message of good luck as he heads back into management.

McCall's work stabilising Rangers during the 2014/15 season hasn't been forgotten even after the club's promotion last term, and Rangers sent a good luck message to McCall on Twitter on Monday evening after his appointment at Bradford was confirmed.
