McGlynn leaves Rovers for Hearts
Scottish Division 1,
Raith Rovers boss John McGlynn has left the club to take over as manager of Scottish Premier League club Hearts.
The 50-year-old takes over at Tynecastle, where he had spells at previously as an assistant and also as a caretaker manager, after Rovers gave him permission to talk to Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov. Raith have already begun pre-season training and assistant Paul Smith will take charge of their preparations, though the Kirkcaldy club's board has already met to consider a successor, but they wished McGlynn well in a statement: "Everyone at Stark's Park wishes to place on record our sincere thanks to John for his professionalism and integrity, for his total commitment to Raith Rovers during his five and a half years with the club and for the significant successes achieved under his leadership."
