Kenny Shiels has left his position as Head Coach at Forth Valley Academy to become boss Thailand Premier League outfit Tero Sasana.

Shiels, a former manager of both Carrick Rangers and Larne, led Kilmarnock to Scottish League Cup success with a 1-0 win over Celtic in 2012.

“It is a great honour to follow in the footsteps of Sven Goran Eriksson and Avram Grant and join such as exciting club in the Thai Premier League. I am looking forward to the new experience and to working with the squad to hopefully bring success and silverware to BEC-Tero Sasana,” Shiels told the Tero Sasana website.

The Upperlands man won the County Antrim Shield with Carrick in 1993 and took charge of Larne in the 2005-06 season.
