Adams, who had a short spell in charge of Portsmouth during their time in the Premier League and has also worked at Wycombe Wanderers and in Azerbaijan and China, takes charge with immediate effect. "I will try to win every game and will try some things in training to liven up the team as we try to achieve a miracle".

"I'm here to put the Spanish structure in place, with players who will belong to Granada CF and who will fight for Granada", he insisted, whilst also recalled details of what John Jiang inherited when he took over the club previous year".

Adams sported a daring three-piece suit which resembled the kind of shower linoleum you might see in your Nan's bathroom.

Gibson said on the La Liga Weekly podcast: "The biggest issue I have with this is that Granada desperately need a director of football, they need some guidance". I'm going to kick some players' a***. I have 40 years experience.

'I want us to be tough to beat. We have a job to do in the next seven games'.

The 50-year-old will take charge of his first game when Granada host Celta Vigo on Sunday night.

"Our focus right now is winning on Sunday".
