John Hughes

John Hughes was appointed manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle on December 4, 2013.

In 2003 he began his managerial career as joint-manager of Falkirk with Owen Coyle but was subsequently handed the reins exclusively when Coyle left for Dundee United. He initially moved to Falkirk near the end of playing career, which included spells with Celtic, Hibernian and Swansea.

Hughes prospered in The Bairns hotseat and guided them to promotion to the Scottish Premier League in 2005 and kept them there for four seasons, as well as reaching the 2009 Scottish Cup Final.

Later in 2009 he was appointed Hibernian manager and in his first season in charge he led the club to Europa League qualification after finishing fourth in the SPL.

He left the club in October 2010 but re-emerged at First Division Livingston and made no secret of his desire to prove himself south of the border.

He subsequently became the manager of Hartlepool United before he later joined Inverness during the 2013/14 season.
