SHAY Given has been confirmed as the new first-team coach at Derby County following the permanent appointment of Wayne Rooney as manager.
Rooney has been leading a coaching team, including Given, at the Rams since the end of November following the departure of Phillip Cocu.
Republic of Ireland legend Given had previously been the goalkeeping coach at Derby, initially recruited in 2018 by then manager Frank Lampard.
Now, the Liffordman takes on the role of first team coach at Pride Park.
Liam Rosenior and Justin Walker have also retained their spots on the coaching ticket. Rosenior will be Rooney’s assistant manager with Walker the first team development coach.
Academy goalkeeping coach Jason Pearcey has been appointed as the club’s first-team goalkeeping coach.
