Paul McGinley will captain the European Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles, Scotland in 2014 after the European Tour's tournament committee decided to appoint the Irishman following a meeting in Abu Dhabi today.

Paul McGinley thanked Rory McIlroy for the part he played in him becoming Europe's new Ryder Cup captain, and said: "If Rory does not make the team I think he has got a good chance of a pick now!"
McGinley got the nod at the European Tour tournament committee meeting in Abu Dhabi, the Dubliner seeing off four other candidates - Scottish trio Colin Montgomerie, Paul Lawrie and Sandy Lyle, and Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez - to land the coveted position.
McGinley, a match-winning hero of Europe's 2002 win and an assistant in the last two victories, was the unanimous choice of the committee on which he also sits, and is relishing the opportunity to pit his wits against United States skipper Tom Watson next year.
"I'm obviously absolutely thrilled and delighted to have this honour," said McGinley.
"I'm relishing the thought of taking on one of my great heroes," he added of Watson.
