Palace interviewed Mackay on Sunday and Monday. Fifield reports the team is expected to announce him as manager today and hold a press conference on Wednesday.

Mackay was sacked as Cardiff City manager in December. He worked with Crystal Palace sporting director Iain Moody during his time at Cardiff.

The Guardian reports other candidates included former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood and former Fulham manager Martin Jol.
