Gary and Billy depart

Dundee Football Club can confirm the departure of manager Gary Bowyer and assistant Billy Barr.

Gary helped the club achieve its objective of an immediate return to the cinch Premiership and we are grateful to him for leading us to the cinch Championship and automatic promotion.

Now is the time for certainty as we enter a critical summer of work in the transfer market and on the training ground, to ensure the first-team squad is ready to compete in the Premiership and remain in the top division.

John Nelms: β€œGiven the importance of the weeks and months ahead, I felt it was necessary to ensure we are all aligned on the direction needed to ensure the club is ready for its return to the Premiership.”

β€œOn behalf of everyone at the club, not least our fans, we wish Gary the best for the future and reiterate our thanks for his achievements in the past year.”

The Managing Director and Technical Director, Gordon Strachan, will undertake a recruitment process to appoint a new manager to lead Dundee into the cinch Premiership and we will update our supporters as soon as this process concludes.
