Oldham have appointed Harry Kewell as their manager after former boss Dino Maamria was sacked this week.
Maamria was relieved of his duties late on Friday evening after 11 months in charge at Boundary Park, having led the Latics to 19th place in League Two before the coronavirus pandemic halted the season.
The Boundary Park role is the 41-year-old's third role in charge of a Football League club, having had short-term stints in charge of Crawley Town and Notts County in 2017 and 2018.

Kewell told the Oldham club website: 'I'm excited about the project and don't get me wrong it's going to take time. Because the one thing I think this club does need is stability and if we can get that, then we can start to grow things.
'We've got to get back to the basics and we're having a "clean slate" here now and I think the fans, myself, the owner, everybody wants to start seeing this club progress because we all believe that's there's a big potential.'
