Mackay to be appointed by Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are expected to confirm Malky Mackay as the replacement for Tony Pulis, who left the club shortly before the start of the new Premier League season, ESPN has reported.

It’s understood that the choice for the Eagles’ new manager came down to Mackay and Tim Sherwood, the former Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder who left Spurs at the end of the season.

Sherwood is thought to have met with Palace co-chairman Steve Parish but Parish has turned instead to ex-Cardiff City boss Mackay, who worked with Palace’s sporting director Iain Moody at the Welsh club.

Mackay was sacked by Cardiff part-way through last season, having taken the Bluebirds into the top flight. Moody departed Cardiff in October and took a posting at Selhurst Park shortly after.

Keith Millen stepped in on a caretaker basis after Pulis left the London club, overseeing Palace’s first game of the new campaign, a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal. Summer signing Brede Hangeland gave Palace the lead only for Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey to net and to give the Gunners the points.

Mackay has previously been in charge at Watford and during his playing days represented the likes of Celtic, West Ham and Norwich City.
