Brechin City have appointed former Leicester City and Hearts manager Craig Levein as a full-time advisor alongside Andy Kirk as manager.

Levein has been out of football since leaving Hearts in the 2019/20 season and has been announced as an advisor for Brechin after they dropped into the Highland League from the SPFL. The 56-year-old has also managed Leicester City and Scotland’s national team.

Kirk becomes the manager after time managing Hearts’ women’s team. Levein said of his new job: “Brechin have a tough job ahead of them and will need to have bags of resilience, focus and stamina to get back to league 2. New Interim Brechin Chairman Kevin Mackie has a clear vision for the club and it’s one which I believe in.

“Brechin City is a pretty special club who’ve been around for over 115 years and Kevin Mackie who is Brechin born and bred is intent on strengthening the club by building a sustainable business model around it. I’ve known Kevin for many years and I have no doubt he will take the bull by the horns to turn things around for Brechin.”
