Former Motherwell and Wolves manager Mark McGhee has taken over as first-team coach at Barnet.

The 60-year-old, who most recently worked as Gordon Strachan's assistant with Scotland, replaces Rossi Eames.

While McGhee begins preparing for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two trip to Port Vale, Eames, 32, steps into a new role as head of player development for the Bees.

A statement published on barnetfc.com read: "Following consultation with the club, Rossi felt that now was the right time to take a step back from his position with the first team to allow someone of Mark's profile to bring his experience to the role.

"Rossi will work with and oversee all players throughout the academy up to under-23 and be a key part of the technical board to help ensure there is a clear player pathway to the first team."

Barnet currently occupy one of the two relegation spots in League Two, with Chesterfield four points behind them and next opponents Vale just a point better off in 22nd place.
