He managed Rangers for 3 years from June 2011- December 2014 (during some very difficult times!) and was assistant manager to Walter Smith from January 2007 until he was appointed manager. So I would suggest that is as much experience as some of the other candidates being mentioned.

I am inclined to think he might be an interesting option. Ally was a very popular figure here in the early 80's, even if rather a lot was expected of such a young man, and ultimately he was not as successful as we wanted. And I am sure he still has an affinity for SAFC and didn't he marry a Sunderland lass?

I recall coming to Gary Bennett's testimonial and by chance ended up sitting next to him in the main stand. Just remember him as a lovely, friendly, very chatty, young man. I got his autograph on my ticket and still have it somewhere.

At least no one would ever be able to accuse him of being dour and negative (unlike our recent Scots manager!) because that is just not his way at all Very Happy

Whom ever it is I just hope he's gets to rip what's left of the 1st team apart regardless of the loss in selling them.

Do the experiences in amateur leagues count, though (that I didn't know, or forgot, about)  tongue

Monk being interviewed today with Sunderland trying to persuade him he's better off here than at Boro or Hull.
Apparently.
According to some report my Leeds colleague has seen.
Anyway. Good luck with that.

To be fair he is probably the best out of a very underwhelming bunch.

BORO SET TO CHOOSE PEARSON OR MONK
Middlesbrough are deciding between Garry Monk and Nigel Pearson after both candidates completed interviews for the vacant manager's job, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports News HQ understands that former Leicester boss Pearson has had a number of discussions with Boro officials, while Monk held a meeting with the club after returning from holiday this week.
Sky sources say Monk has also spoken to Sunderland about their vacant manager position but would prefer to take over at the Riverside.
He had been on holiday since resigning after a successful season at Leeds and did not speak to any other clubs before this week.

Sunderland legend Kevin Phillips is the shock new favourite to be the Black Cats' new manager


The former striker has seen his odds slashed overnight to now lead the betting. He is 6/4 with SkyBet and evens with Ladbrokes to be David Moyes' successor, while he was priced at 25/1 last night. The 43-year-old is coach at Derby County and had been tipped early in the running after Moyes resigned more than three weeks ago. Phillips is known to be keen to get into management and while he doesn't have the experience of other candidates, he would be a name a lot of fans would welcome. Super Kev enjoyed a goal-laden time on Wearside, scoring 130 goals in 235 appearances for the Wearsiders, during which time he also won the European Golden Shoe in the 1999/2000 season.

Cheapest option?
Someone with whom Bain will have a greater balance of power?
Keeps some fans happy.

I guess that's why the bookies have slashed the odds.

I guess this means we are officially behind in the race to sign a manager.

Garry Monk: Middlesbrough set to confirm former Leeds United boss as manager

[size=11]Garry Monk won 47% of his games in charge of Leeds United

Middlesbrough are set to confirm former Leeds United boss Garry Monk as their new manager later on Friday.
After interviewing several candidates, Monk has emerged as Boro's first choice and will sign a long-term deal.
Monk, 38, left Leeds on 25 May after being unable to "reach an agreement"with new owner Andrea Radrizzani.
He managed Swansea City in the Premier League between 2014 and 2015 before guiding Leeds to a seventh-placed finish in the Championship last season.
Middlesbrough finished 19th and were relegated from the Premier League after winning just five of their 38 games under previous bosses Aitor Karanka and Steve Agnew.
Agnew took over from Karanka on 16 March on a temporary basis and could not prevent Boro going down but is expected to stay on at the club in some capacity.
Former Southampton and Everton striker James Beattie, who worked with Monk at Leeds, is expected to be part of his coaching staff again at Middlesbrough.
Monk, who was appointed on a one-year rolling contract at Leeds in June 2016, had been expected to sign a new deal with the Yorkshire club after Radrizzani gained full control of the club from Massimo Cellino.
However, Monk left saying he was unable to "agree a suitable way for us all to move forward together".[/size]

You may not agree but I think you have dodged a bullet there, mediocre at Swansea and ran out of steam and ideas at Leeds  like
