The club confirmed that Carrick will take over the upcoming games, before an interim boss is put in charge.
When asked if fans could expect to see any change in the team’s approach Tuesday night, he said: ‘We will have to wait and see. I worked closely with Ole and we have very similar beliefs – we did it as players and we certainly do it as coaches.
‘Of course I have my own personality for Ole, but we are very similar and that is why we worked together for so long. I am not revealing too much about what my plans are, but I am very clear about how we want to play and I am looking forward to seeing that on the field. ”
