The midfield legend, who won three Premier League titles, four FA cups, two League Cups and the UEFA Champions League during his 13 years at Chelsea, will take charge of The Rams with immediate effect.

Announcing the appointment, Derby County Executive Chairman, CBE, Mel Morris, said: "I’m delighted to have someone of Frank’s calibre as our new manager.

"I’ve always been an admirer of Frank both as a player and a person, especially in the way he conducts himself both on and off the pitch. That impression was only re-enforced when we interviewed him for this role, his passion and humility shone through in equal measure. The board were unanimous that he was the stand-out applicant with many highly desirable and unique capabilities."
