Horton returns to the Silkmen
Tuesday 20 March 2012
Macclesfield have appointed Brian Horton as their manager until the end of the season. The Silkmen, who are outside the League Two relegation zone on goal difference, sacked Gary Simpson on Sunday.
Horton, a former Manchester City and Port Vale manager, was in charge at Moss Rose between 2004 and 2006. He has not managed since then, instead serving as assistant to Phil Brown at Hull and Preston.
Rotherham yesterday sacked their manager, Andy Scott, after a little under a year in the job.
