FORMER Blues' assistant manager Willie Donachie has tied the knot with fiancée Mileva Drljaca.

The 56-year-old, who was right hand man to Joe Royle, was married at St Margarets Church, Ipswich.

Donachie left Ipswich Town in June 2006 after Jim Magilton was appointed manager and joined Millwall as assistant to Nigel Spackman.

He took over the helm at the Lions in November that year but was sacked in October 2007 after a poor run of results left the club bottom of League One.

The former Scotland full-back, who played in the 1978 World Cup, has also had spells as an assistant manager at Oldham, Everton and Sheffield Wednesday.

His playing career included time at Manchester City, Portland Timbers in the USA, Norwich City, Burnley and Oldham Athletic.
