Allardyce was given a two-and-a-half-year contract at Selhurst Park.

Chariman Steve Parish told the club’s website: “We are delighted to be able to make an appointment so quickly and fortunate that someone of Sam’s calibre and experience was available.”

He will take charge of the team with immediate effect in time for the Boxing Day match against Watford.
