Liam Fox has been sacked by Dundee United just five months after being appointed head coach at Tannadice Park.
The 39-year-old departs after the club lost 4-0 to fellow strugglers Ross County on Saturday – a result which leaves United rooted to the foot of the Scottish Premiership and four points behind those above.
Fox was assistant to previous manager Jack Ross, who was sacked last August following the 9-0 defeat to Celtic, before being handed the top job in September.
However, the club have not won any of their last seven matches and picked up just five victories from 19 games since Fox took permanent charge.
Dundee United fans called for Fox and sporting director Tony Asghar to be sacked after the defeat in Dingwall, with just 12 games left for the club to avoid relegation.
