The former Sheffield Wednesday boss was made the Bookies favourite to succeed Kit Symons over the past few days, and will begin his reign at Craven Cottage, as a Senior Coach.

However, Gray has only been placed in charge as an interim Head Coach, as the search for a new manager continues.

The club have been without a manager for a month after sacking Symons on the 8th November.

Fulham were set to appoint Steve Clarke, who was on the verge of joining the Cottagers, while still in charge at the Royals, but rejected the West London club.

Gray has been taking training at Fulham and is will be charge for their next home game against Brentford on Saturday.

Speaking to the Fulham official site, Fulham’s Chief Football Officer Mike Rigg said:

“The search for a permanent Head Coach goes on, but it is important to ensure we focus fully on getting results back on track while this process continues,”.

“With that, I’d like to welcome Stuart Gray, who has joined the Club as Senior Coach and has already begun working with the First Team to prepare for Saturday’s home match against Brentford.
