Bobby Williamson has been officially appointed Kenya coach after finally signing a contract with the country’s football federation.

The 53-year-old has confirmed to the BBC that he had put pen to paper and will take charge of his club side Gor Mahia for the final time this weekend.

Williamson, who has previously coached Uganda, said he had agreed a rolling contract, with a long-term view.

Gor Mahia also said on its website the Scot  will depart after Sunday’s match.

Williamson joined the club midway through last season and helped them clinch their 13th Premier League title.

Caf overturned Rwanda’s penalty -shootout win over Congo after it ruled Daddy Birori had been ineligible to play in the tie.

Congo, who have been put through to the group phase in Rwanda’s place, had argued that the player has a passport for both countries with two names and two dates of birth.
