McAllister pens new contract

Jamie McAllister has signed a permanent contract to continue his role working as assistant head coach to Lee Johnson at Ashton Gate.

The Scotsman previously stepped in on an interim basis following the departure of John Pemberton in March, working alongside Dean Holden.

McAllister, 39, made 210 appearances in a six-year stint as a City player, winning promotion from League One in 2006/07 and reaching the Championship play-off final the following season.

Having called time on his playing career last summer, the former left-back was soon appointed as City’s Under-23 coach.

After impressing in charge of the club’s development group, McAllister made the step up to join the first team setup, helping the team secure their Championship status in April.
