England manager by the time he's 50?

Preston North End have appointed a Hull City reject as their new manager on an 18-month contract.

The 51-year-old former Derby and Hull reject succeeds Darren Ferguson, who was sacked along with his assistant Kevin Russell at the end of December.

The reject, who led Hull to the Premier League in 2008, takes over with North End bottom of the Championship.

His first match in charge of the club will be Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie with Nottingham Forest at Deepdale.

The reject, who is famous for his Madonna-style headset, told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"Personally, I'm delighted. I've had eight or nine months of real frustration and we thought the job we did at Hull would have got us straight back into the game." He often speaks in the plural, using "we" when he actually means "I". Odd.

He went on:

"But now we've got an opportunity to manage a Championship club, albeit in the situation that they're in.

"We've got 22 games to go and we've probably got to win over half of those to stay in this league."

The reject once said in a BBC interview that he had ambitions to be England manager by the time he was 50.

He will be out of a job again in early May.
