Former Rangers star Madjid Bougherra has been named as new head coach of Arabian Gulf League outfit Fujairah as he returns to his former club for a second spell.
The Arab side confirmed the appointment of the former Algeria captain on their official Twitter account, three years after he hung up his boots.

The Algerian was a cult hero with Gers fans during his time at Ibrox and fans will no doubt wish him well as he takes his first steps in management.
Diego Maradona had a brief spell in charge of Fujairah but was sacked last April and replaced by former UAE boss Dr Abdullah Mesfer.
Bougherra made 39 appearances for the club during his time with them as a player before moving to Aris in Greece where he ended his career.
During his time with Rangers, Bougherra lifted three Scottish titles, two Scottish League Cups and a Scottish Cup as well as winning the Goal of the Season award in 2010.
With Fujairah narrowly missing out on relegation from the Arab Gulf League last season, Bougherra will have a big job on his hands in his first managerial role.
