Christophe Berra has been named the new Raith Rovers first-team manager as he doubles as a player.
The former Hearts star has been with the Championship club since last year and has previously featured on the coaching side.
But new Rovers boss Ian Murray has seen fit to officially integrate the 37-year-old into his backroom squad.
And with Berra now having a UEFA A license among his qualifications, he hopes to put it to good use as he and his teammates aim for promotion this coming season.
Speaking to the Raith Rovers website, he said: “Having been involved in coaching Rovers last season as well as playing, I relish the opportunity to further develop my coaching skills.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity the manager gave me, and I think it’s a natural progression for me going forward.
“I look forward to seeing the team again this morning when pre-season training begins.”
Berra has a wealth of experience as a player, having played almost 650 games in his career so far.
This includes 146 appearances for Hearts in all competitions over two spells at the Tynecastle club, while he also earned 41 caps for Scotland during his international career.
