Scunthorpe United have named former Ipswich and Shrewsbury boss Paul Hurst as their new manager.

The Iron were relegated from League One on the final day of the season, with Andy Dawson in caretaker charge following Stuart McCall's departure.

Hurst, 44, won only one of his 14 Championship games in charge of Ipswich before being dismissed in October.

He had previously taken Shrewsbury to the League One play-off final and Checkatrade Trophy final in 2017-18.

Chris Doig has also joined Scunthorpe as Hurst's assistant, while Dawson will remain on the club's coaching staff.

Kenny Black and Nick Barmby, who were helping Dawson during his spell as caretaker manager, have left Glanford Park.

Scunthorpe were relegated to League Two earlier this month, having reached the play-offs in each of the two previous seasons, and next term they will feature in the fourth tier for the first time since 2013-14.
