The former Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray is reportedly returning to Fulham.

Gray was Fulham’s first-team coach for two-and-a-half years prior to his departure last summer.

However, according to Sky Sports, the 58-year-old will be present at the Cottagers’ training session on Friday as assistant to Scott Parker.

Parker, who took Gray’s job initially, has confirmed as Fulham’s new interim manager after Claudio Ranieri’s dismissal on Thursday.

 

However, the former England midfielder was coached by Gray at Craven Cottage towards the end of his playing career.

Parker and Gray have a job on their hands at Fulham, who look like certainties to face Wednesday in next season’s Championship.

However, a strong end to the campaign could see the pair kept on by the Cottagers and set up a reunion between the Owls and their popular ex-boss (assuming Steve Bruce’s side don’t make the play-offs!).

Did Fulham shoot themselves in the foot getting rid of Gray?
