CLIENT NEWS: GRANT SCOTT IS INTERIM HEAD COACH AT GLASGOW CITY
- Lands job to take the helm ahead of a new era at the 14-in-a-row Scottish champions
- Thrilled to have the chance to prepare stellar squad as they aim for their SWPL opener on September 5
- Once plotted City’s downfall as a Cup double-winning coach at Hibernian
GRANT SCOTT once spent his coaching life figuring out ways to break Glasgow City's dominance of women's football in Scotland.
Now the 14-in-a-row champions' new Interim Head Coach will get the chance to feel what life is like at the helm of the SWPL 1 powerhouse.
Vastly experienced Sport Careers Agency client Grant is in charge of City as they prepare for a new era following the departure of former Head Coach Scott Booth to English Women's Super League side Birmingham City.
City are planning to hit the reset button and appoint a new female Head Coach after winning those 14 titles under the shrewd guidance of the ground-breaking Eddie Wolecki Black and then former Aberdeen and Scotland striker Booth.
They will plot that appointment carefully, though, and until then Grant is thrilled to be in charge of such a gifted playing squad.
Scott, who has previously worked as an assistant coach at the club, said: "It is a real honour to work with this special club again especially as Interim Head Coach.
"I am very grateful to the Chief Executive Laura Montgomery and everyone else involved for trusting me to guide the team for a period.
"Like every season there will be challenges but as always at City, we'll welcome that and hope those challenges keep pushing us to new levels. We can't wait to get started."
Grant was a real thorn in City's side as he guided Hibernian to two domestic Cup doubles in 2018 and 2019.
Each time his side defeated Glasgow City in the process and he also took Hibees into the Champions League making the knockout stages two years ago.
City Chief Executive Montgomery moved swiftly after Booth's departure at the end of June to ensure the club is in good hands as they prepare for their SWPL 1 opener at home to Motherwell on September 5.
Laura said: "I am delighted to appoint Grant as Interim Head Coach.
"It is a very exciting time for the club as we embark on a new era and I am thrilled Grant will help us through our transition to our new Head Coach who will join officially in a few months' time.
"We have always had a succession plan at the club and we have worked diligently to get what and who we wanted in place. Grant is an excellent coach, with one of the best track records in the game.
"He is no stranger to the club, having outwitted us many times on the field as well as, of course, joining us briefly at the start of last season as Assistant Coach.
"I wish Grant the best of success over the coming months and very much look forward to working with him."
