Back to Coaches & Backroom Staff

Raith Rovers announced the appointment of Ian Murray as the Club’s new First Team Manager on a two-year contract on the 24th of May 2022 following the expiry of his contract at League One side Airdrieonians, where he was the North Lanarkshire side’s Head Coach for the previous four years.

Murray led The Diamonds to successive top half finishes in League One during his time there, including a third-place finish when Rovers won the First Division in the curtailed 2019/20 campaign. Since then, he took Airdrieonians to successive second place finishes in League One, and in season 2021/22 the Diamonds went on a 23-game unbeaten run before being pipped in the Championship Play-Off Final by Queen’s Park.

Ian started his managerial career in 2012 at Dumbarton as a 31-year-old, spending two and a half seasons with The Sons before joining St. Mirren for a six month spell.

After 22 months at Norwegian club Asker as Assistant Manager, Ian joined Airdrieonians in October 2018.
