Malky Thomson has become the second member of Blues' backroom staff to link up with United Arab Emirates side Al-Ahli, who are managed by David O'Leary.

Thomson joined Blues midway through last season as reserve-team coach having previously played for Aberdeen and been assistant manager at Chester, Dundee United and Inverness.

He has now joined Roy Aitken, who was Blues' first-team coach under Alex McLeish, in deciding to join up with O'Leary.
