Ex-Millers boss is sacked again

FORMER Rotherham United manager Alan Stubbs has been sacked after less than three months at Scottish side St. Mirren.

The 46 year old who was axed by Rotherham in October, 2016, after five months at the helm replaced Jack Ross at the Paisley club in June.

The cub sit second bottom of the Premiership after one win and three successive defeats.

"Careful consideration was given to this decision," St Mirren said last night. "The search for a new manager will begin immediately."

Former Celtic and Everton defender Stubbs moved to Rotherham after helping Hibs win the Scottish Cup in 2016 and left the Millers four months later after one win in 14 matches.

He remained out of management until taking up the St Mirren vacancy and the club recruited 13 players during the summer transfer window.

The club opened the new season with progress from their League Cup first-round group and an opening Premiership win at home to Dundee.

However, league defeats to Rangers, Livingston and Hearts followed and Stubbs' side also lost to Aberdeen in the League Cup.
