Former Norwich City assistant manager Lee Clark has been confirmed as boss of Bury after leaving Kilmarnock.

Both clubs made the announcement as details emerged of Clark's exit from Rugby Park after a year in charge.

Clark takes over at the League One club from Chris Brass, who was appointed head coach on an interim basis until the end of the season after David Flitcroft lost his post as manager in mid-November.

The Shakers, 21st in the table and two points from safety, agreed a compensation package with Kilmarnock to ensure Clark's release.

A Kilmarnock club statement read: 'When Lee expressed a desire to move back to his homeland, the clubs swiftly agreed terms for the early termination of his contract which was due to run until May 2019.'

Clark was assistant to Glenn Roeder but left in December 2008 to take over at Huddersfield.
