Manager Profile

Birmingham-born Kelly was one of the few people to have both played for and managed City in the club's history. He came through the club's youth ranks and went on to play 24 league matches for the Foxes, chipping in with one league goal from midfield along the way. But his playing career never really took off, moving on loan to Tranmere Rovers before moving to Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he made just 16 starts and then Burton Albion. He was forced to retire at the age of just 24 after sustaining a career-ending back injury.

He was given a job as youth team coach with Wolves and also trained as a journalist with the Wolverhampton Express and Star before returning to football, first back with Wolves in their coaching set-up and then to Watford as a youth team coach. He looked suited to youth football and hit the heights when he was given the job of Academy Director at Blackburn Rovers.

Kelly was given the role of assistant manager at Leicester under manager Craig Levein and, when the Scot got sacked after 18 months in charge, Kelly stepped-in to be caretaker manager. He impressed, steering the club to 21 points from a possible 30 in his first ten games in charge. It took the Foxes up and away from the relegation spots and he won the Championship manager of the month award in March 2006. His job impressed the club, who gave him a one-year rolling contract in April 2006.

He couldn't replicate his run of results when he was confirmed as full-time manager though and was sacked due to a poor run of results a year later, with his rolling deal coming to an end. He was replaced by Nigel Worthington for the remainder of the season.

Kelly went on to a coaching role at Preston North End before becoming assistant boss to Alan Irvine at Sheffield Wednesday. Following Irvine's departure from the Owls he was given the same role under Steve McLaren at Nottingham Forest. In all three of those roles he went on to be caretaker manager as each boss got the sack. Most notably, he helped Preston to a 7-0 FA Cup win over Colchester United in his only game in caretaker charge.
