Mark Kerr has replaced Ian McCall as Ayr United's new manager.

The former midfielder takes charge on an 18-month contract.

Kerr, signed by McCall in 2018, helped his side to the League One title before making 30 appearances as the Honest Men made the Premiership play-offs the following season.

He told the club's official website: "I am absolutely delighted to have been given this opportunity.

"This is a fantastic club and right now we have a top group of players and I can’t wait to lead them."
