Former Notts County boss Ian McParland has joined Roy Keane's coaching staff at Ipswich.

McParland, who spent 10 years as a coach with Nottingham Forest, has been recruited following his departure from the ambitious League Two club last month, having failed to fulfil heady expectations while working alongside ex-England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Manager Keane told the club's official website: "I've been alongside 'Charlie' on a couple of coaching courses and he left an impression on me there."

The former Republic of Ireland International added: "He's got a lot of experience, knows the league inside out and obviously has managed as well, at Notts County.

"He's a bubbly character and most importantly, he's a good man. I've always kept an eye out for good people with a view to adding to my staff here and Charlie is someone I can trust. I'm looking forward to working with him here."
