GARY Bowyer is relishing his first taste of Scottish football after taking the Dundee helm.

The former Bantams boss is back in management within a month of being sacked by Salford.

Bowyer was appointed at Dens Park yesterday with the target of winning promotion straight back to the Scottish Premier League.

He said: "I've managed in England for, I think, over 300 league games and I wanted to broaden my horizons. Once I was made aware of the fact there was interest it was a no-brainer for me.

"We’ve got to try and change the mentality very quickly because it's been one of losing games.

"I'm fully aware of how hard the Championship is. It's exciting and we've just got to have a right good go at it."

Bowyer, who was in charge of City from March 2019 to February 2020, was not the first choice to succeed Mark McGhee after Dundee were relegated from the top flight.

Dundee had been talking to former Hibs manager Shaun Maloney but that broke down last week.

Another former Bantams boss, Simon Grayson, has also been announced in a new job. He has been appointed by Indian Super League club Bengaluru.
