The Premier League's oldest managerial appointments

Roy Hodgson has become the oldest Premier League managerial appointment after being named Crystal Palace boss.

The 70-year-old former England manager replaces Frank de Boer, who was sacked after just 77 days and four games in charge.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at the five previous oldest Premier League 'new boys'.

GUUS HIDDINK - 69

The former Netherlands boss was named interim Chelsea manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and guided them on a 12-game unbeaten run, finishing 10th. Hiddink had also managed the Blues for the final three months of the 2008-09 campaign. He was recently linked with a return to the South Korea job.

DICK ADVOCAAT - 67

Took over at Sunderland in March 2015, a day after the sacking of Gus Poyet with the Black Cats one point above the relegation zone. Advocaat left after keeping them up but had a change of heart and signed a one-year contract only to resign in October. Now in his third spell in charge of the Dutch national team.

SIR BOBBY ROBSON - 66

The ex-England boss arrived at Newcastle via spells at PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona in September 1999. He stayed five years, guiding the Toon into the Champions League twice and to the UEFA Cup semi-finals. Died in 2009 aged 76 after a long battle with cancer.

HARRY REDKNAPP - 65

QPR turned to Redknapp in November 2012 after sacking Mark Hughes with the side bottom of the Premier League table and without a win in their opening 12 games. He could not keep Rangers up but got them promoted the following season. Now 70, Redknapp is manager at Championship Birmingham.

NEIL WARNOCK - 65

Came in for a second spell at Palace after Tony Pulis left before the 2014-15 season. But following a poor start to the campaign with the Eagles in the relegation zone, Warnock was sacked in December. Currently pushing for promotion back to the Premier League with Cardiff.
