Spackman unveiled as the new manager of Millwall

Nigel Spackman has been appointed the new manager of Millwall.

The 45-year-old former Chelsea midfielder, who also played for Liverpool and Rangers, had held managerial posts at Barnsley and Sheffield United but has most recently been working as a television pundit. He also has experience in the England set-up, coaching the Under-18 side.

Millwall parted company with David Tuttle in April after relegation to League One, two years after appearing in an FA Cup final.

The former Spurs midfielder Ossie Ardiles is to become the new manager of Beitar Jerusalem, according to the Israeli club's Russian owner. The Argentinian World Cup winner, now 53, takes over from the former Paris St-Germain coach, Luis Fernandez, who guided Beitar to a disappointing third place in the Israeli championship earlier this month. Other names linked to the vacancy had included Kevin Keegan.

Elsewhere, Billy Davies said he has "massive decisions to make" as Charlton step up their recruitment drive. The Preston manager, 42 next week, is one of the candidates to succeed Alan Curbishley and was interviewed on Monday.

"Basically I am considering all the options," Davies said. "It is just a question of thinking about the future."

The former England captain Tony Adams is hopeful of being appointed as the new coach of Dutch side NAC Breda this week. The former Arsenal defender has previously been in charge at Wycombe but may see his move to Breda ruined by a row with the Dutch Football Association over his qualifications.

"I was on a course in England for four-and-a-half years. I have the A licence and with that I can coach any English club and that is why I do not understand the confusion at the KNVB," Adams said. "NAC is a nice club and I think that I can offer them a lot."

Sir Bobby Robson will return to duty with the Republic of Ireland today after recuperating from surgery.

Ireland's International Football Consultant was given the all-clear after an operation to remove a suspected cancerous growth on his lung. Robson will not travel to Portugal for a four-day training camp in the Algarve, but he will watch the friendly against Chile.
