Anthony Mark "Tony" Mowbray (born 22 November 1963) is an English former professional football player and a manager who last managed Middlesbrough. Mowbray played for Middlesbrough, Celtic and Ipswich Town as a defender.

The son of a steel worker and scaffolder, he began his coaching career with Ipswich Town and took his first managerial job at Scottish Premier League side Hibernian, where he won the Scottish Football Writers' Association Manager of the Year award in his first season. He moved on to West Bromwich Albion in 2006, where he won the Football League Championship in 2008, but then suffered relegation from the Premier League the following year. Mowbray was then appointed as manager of Celtic, but was dismissed after nine months. Mowbray subsequently took the manager's role at another of his former clubs, Middlesbrough.[1] On 21 October 2013 after a poor start to the 2013-14 season, Mowbray left Middlesbrough with immediate effect. [2]


Tony Mowbray Playing career



Tony Mowbray Middlesbrough

After playing his first match for the club in 1982, Mowbray became captain of Middlesbrough in 1986 when he was just 22 years old. Affectionately known to Boro fans as "Mogga", Mowbray became a legend in Middlesbrough for being a local lad who led the club from liquidation back into the top league of English football within two seasons.

In 2007, Mowbray was placed at number 7 in a chronological list of Middlesbrough legends[3] compiled by local newspaper the Evening Gazette. The Middlesbrough club fanzine Fly me to the Moon is named after a quote about Mowbray from ex-Middlesbrough manager Bruce Rioch – "If I had to fly to the moon I'd take Tony Mowbray, my captain, with me. He's a magnificent man". After 348 appearances for Boro, Mowbray moved to Glasgow Celtic for £1,000,000.


Tony Mowbray Celtic

During his playing career with Celtic, Mowbray's wife Bernadette, a native of Renfrewshire, died of breast cancer. The episode is recalled in Mowbray's book, "Kissed by an Angel." It is often asserted that the "huddle" which Celtic players still perform before each match was arranged as a tribute to Bernadette.[4] However, it was merely suggested by Mowbray on a pre-season tour of Germany to bring the squad together at a time of uncertainty.[citation needed]


Tony Mowbray Ipswich

He later moved on to Ipswich Town, where he played for five years, becoming the team captain. He scored an equalising goal in the 2000 Division One playoff final victory against Barnsley. Ipswich won the match 4–2 and secured promotion to the FA Premier League. This match was both Mowbray's Wembley debut and the last of his playing career.


Tony Mowbray Coaching career


Once his playing career finished he moved into coaching, starting as a first team coach at Ipswich Town. He had a brief spell as caretaker manager of Ipswich, following the sacking of George Burley and prior to the appointment of Joe Royle.[5]


Tony Mowbray Hibernian

In May 2004, Mowbray was appointed manager of Hibernian, replacing Bobby Williamson.[6] He gained much acclaim for the job he did, winning the Scottish Football Writers' Association manager of the year award in his first season.[7] Hibs finished in the top four in the SPL in his only two full seasons in charge, which was the first time that Hibs had done this in the top division in consecutive seasons since Eddie Turnbull was manager.

Hibs progressed to the later stages of every domestic cup competition in his tenure and made two appearances in European football. Hibs lost heavily to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the first round of the 2005-06 UEFA Cup and on the away goals rule to OB Odense in the 2006 Intertoto Cup. During mid-2006, Mowbray was interviewed for the vacant managerial position at Ipswich Town, but he rejected their approach.[8] In September 2006 he signed a 12-month rolling deal with Hibs that was due to take effect from July 2007.[9] Just one month later however, Mowbray moved to West Bromwich Albion.


Tony Mowbray West Bromwich Albion

In early October 2006, media reports linked him with the vacant managerial position at West Brom. On 10 October, it was confirmed by West Brom that they had asked Hibernian for permission to interview Mowbray, which was granted the following day. On 13 October, West Bromwich Albion announced that they had appointed Mowbray as their new manager.[10]

Mowbray replaced Bryan Robson as Albion manager, and immediately faced the task of returning the Baggies to the Premier League after relegation under Robson the previous season. Although he managed to turn around the club's poor away form, an indifferent run of results at home towards the end of the season meant that Albion finished fourth in The Championship table behind Sunderland, Birmingham City and Derby County, and faced the lottery of the Championship Play-Offs. Despite two famous victories over old rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in the semi finals, Albion lost 1–0 to Derby County in the Wembley final.

As a result, during the close season, Mowbray set about restructuring his squad, moving out several of Robson's players for multi-million pound fees, after press reports of dressing room division.[11] High profile players such as Jason Koumas, Diomansy Kamara and Curtis Davies were sold to Premier League clubs for large fees, in addition to the departures of Paul McShane, Nathan Ellington, Darren Carter and Steve Watson. Mowbray replaced them by signing a total of 14 permanent and loan players in the summer transfer window, making an overall profit in the process. His most expensive signings were Chris Brunt from Sheffield Wednesday for £3 million, Leon Barnett from Luton Town for £2.5 million, and James Morrison from Middlesbrough for £1.5 million.

Despite the large changes in his squad, Mowbray won the Championship Manager of the Month award in September 2007, after Albion gained 13 out of the maximum 15 points and climbed to 2nd in the Division.[12] At the start of 2008, Mowbray's young Albion team topped the table, receiving growing plaudits from the media[13] and supporters[14] alike for their attractive brand of attacking one touch passing football, a reflection of Mowbray's staunch footballing philosophy.[15]

Mowbray guided West Brom to the Football League Championship title, meaning promotion to the Premier League and reached the semi-final of the FA Cup. The semi-final, the first to be played at the new Wembley Stadium, pitted West Brom against Portsmouth, the only remaining Premier League team left in the FA Cup. Portsmouth won the match 1–0 with the only goal of the game coming from Kanu. Mowbray won the Championship manager of the month award for April,[16] as well as the League Managers Association manager of the year award.[17]

After a poor 2008–09 season, West Bromwich were relegated from the Premier League, finishing 20th. Mowbray was still thought highly of by the fans, however, and this was evidenced by them wearing Mowbray masks at their last game of the season.[18] Mowbray left the club for Celtic shortly afterwards.


Tony Mowbray Celtic

Tony Mowbray as Celtic manager.

On 8 June 2009, it was reported that Celtic had approached West Bromwich Albion for permission to speak to Mowbray about their managerial vacancy.[19] A compensation fee of £2 million was agreed, and Celtic declared Mowbray as their new manager on 16 June 2009.[20] He was unveiled as Celtic manager at a press conference a day later. His coaching team was Neil Lennon, Peter Grant, Mark Venus and Stevie Woods.[21] On 12 September 2009 was named as the Coach of the Month of August in the Scottish Premier League.[22]

Mowbray was described as "beleaguered" by The Herald after Celtic fell 10 points behind Old Firm rivals Rangers in the SPL title race after a 2–1 home defeat by Hibs.[23] Mowbray decided to make significant changes to his squad during the January 2010 transfer window, selling Gary Caldwell and Barry Robson, which apparently caused disruption to the team in the immediate aftermath of those deals being completed.[23] As of 28 January 2010, Mowbray's record as Celtic manager was worse than John Barnes, who was sacked midway through his first season in charge.[24] Robbie Keane was recruited early in 2010 on a loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur amid great excitement, however further poor results, particularly a record 4–0 defeat by St. Mirren, led to Mowbray being sacked on 25 March.[25] Although his tenure ended in this unfortunate way his appointment had initially been popular amongst the support and gave cause for optimism in view of his former role in playing for Celtic before this.

It was revealed in May 2010 that Celtic had yet to agree compensation with Mowbray and his management team which could be as much as £1.4 million.[26]


Tony Mowbray Middlesbrough

Mowbray was appointed Middlesbrough manager on 26 October 2010, replacing Gordon Strachan.[27] Mowbray lost his first match in charge, 2–1 against Bristol City,[28] but followed this with wins against Crystal Palace and Scunthorpe. Mowbray guided Boro to Championship safety,[29] having joined the club when they were 22nd in the league. The club finished the season well, winning their last four league games and finished 12th in the league table. The same season, Mowbray started giving youngsters a first team place such as Joe Bennett, Luke Williams and Richard Smallwood. Mowbray also start giving Marvin Emnes more playing after returning on loan from Swansea City and start scoring goals.[citation needed]

In the close season, Mowbray moved on highly paid players, including Kris Boyd and Didier Digard.[citation needed] Middlesbrough began the 2011–12 season well and Mowbray won manager of the month for September.[30] Middlesbrough relinquished the only unbeaten record in the league after a 2–0 defeat to Nottingham Forest in October 2011.[citation needed] After a 3–0 defeat to league leaders Southampton,[citation needed] Middlesbrough won 3–1 at Doncaster Rovers[31] and 1–0 against Watford.[citation needed] Boro held an unbeaten home record until November, when they lost 2–0 to West Ham.[citation needed] After a poor start to 2012, Middlesbrough's form picked up in late February with four wins in five games.[32] Middlesbrough finished 7th in the 2011–12 season, missing out on a play-off place by one position.[citation needed]

For the 2012–13 season, Mowbray added Grant Leadbitter, Stuart Parnaby, Jonathan Woodgate, Emmanuel Ledesma, George Friend, Mustapha Carayol and Jayson Leutwiler to the squad. Mowbray also brought in Josh McEachran and Ishmael Miller in on season long loans from Chelsea and Nottingham Forest respectively.[citation needed] After an unbeaten run in October 2012, Mowbray won the accolade of Championship Manager of the Month for that month[33]

On 21 October 2013, it was announced that Mowbray had left the club with immediate effect after a run of 2 wins in 12 games in the 2013-14 campaign.[34]
