Kevin MacDonald

Kevin MacDonald is currently assistant manager of Aston Villa.

MacDonald was previously the manager of Swindon Town.

Kevin, a former Liverpool Double-winner and Uefa Pro Licence holder, entered his first permanent managerial post after his appointment at the County Ground.

His previous football post was with Barclays Premier League side Aston Villa where he served for 17 years as a coach. He had a spell in charge as caretaker after Martin O'Neill left the club before the start of the 2010/11 season and later served as first-team coach last season under Alex McLeish.

Prior to his time with Villa, he joined Leicester's coaching staff in 1994 where he also served as caretaker manager for four games following Brian Little's exit.

Kevin's other main coaching role was acting as assistant manager to Steve Staunton for Republic of Ireland between 2005 and 2006.

In addition to Liverpool, he spent his playing career with Leicester, Caledonian, Rangers, Coventry, Cardiff and Walsall.

After taking charge at Swindon, he successfully guided the club to a 6th place finish where his side narrowly missed out on a place in the play-off final, after losing to Brentford on penalties.
