The 46-year-old Scotsman, who was sacked by the Dons in February following a poor run of form, has been tasked with reviving the fortunes of the USL Championship outfit. It means a return to the United States for the ex-Hibs and Newcastle midfielder, where he cut his coaching teeth at clubs such as Atlanta United before moving back to his homeland for an underwhelming spell at Pittodrie.

Memphis’ sporting director is Tim Howard, who played for the USA and Manchester United, and he said of Glass’ arrival: “We couldn’t be more excited for what Stephen will bring. His knowledge of the American soccer landscape as well as his international managerial experience will allow us to continue to build on our recent success. It has been satisfying to not only land our top target but to know how eager Stephen is to get to work.”
