Fulham have appointed Peter Grant as first-team coach.

Grant, 48, will work under boss Felix Magath, who described the former Scotland international as "the right choice to join us as we build for the future."

Having made more than 350 appearances for Celtic, Grant played for Norwich City and Reading before a spell as player-coach at Bournemouth.

He was assistant boss at West Ham before an unsuccessful year as Norwich manager, since which he has worked under Tony Mowbray at West Brom and Celtic, and Alex McLeish at both Birmingham and Aston Villa.

Fulham Football Club statement
Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Grant, who joins Felix Magath's staff as a First Team Coach.

A former Scotland international, Grant started his senior playing career in 1982 with Glasgow Celtic, making more than 350 appearances before moving to England to sign for Norwich City.

His first coaching experience was as player-coach with AFC Bournemouth before assuming the position of assistant manager at the South-Coast club.

He became the assistant manager of West Ham United and, along with Alan Pardew, helped the side reach the 2006 FA Cup Final.

Five months later, Grant was appointed manager of Norwich where he remained for 12 months.

He has held first team coaching roles at West Bromwich Albion and Celtic under Tony Mowbray. He also worked under Alex McLeish at Birmingham City, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.

Magath said: "I'm delighted Peter Grant has joined my backroom staff for the start of pre-season training. I believe Peter is the right choice to join us as we build for the future."
