Barnes takes Tranmere job

Published Add your comment

John Barnes has been confirmed as manager of Coca-Cola League One outfit Tranmere.

The former England and Liverpool winger, who recently ended his short stint as head coach of Jamaica, has been out of club management since being sacked by Celtic in February 2000.

The 45-year-old will now be forced to work to a limited budget at Prenton Park.

Tranmere, who narrowly failed to make the play-offs on the final day of last season, recently sacked Ronnie Moore after three years in charge of the Merseyside club.

Barnes' former Liverpool team-mate and ex-Tranmere midfielder Jason McAteer has been named assistant-manager.
