Raith Rovers Sack Gary Locke

by Jack Kitson / 08 February 2017, 10:36

Raith Rovers have sacked manager Gary Locke after a year in charge following a woeful run of 14 matches without a win.

The Rovers sunk to a 1-0 defeat at Greenock Morton on Tuesday night - their sixth successive league loss - leaving the club 8th in the Scottish Championship, only four points and two places above the dreaded drop zone.

Fortunately for The Rovers the two clubs below them are also enduring a torrid time, with 9th place Ayr winless since October, while rock-bottom St Mirren only have two triumphs to their name all season.

The Kirkcaldy club are also without a league success since the hazy days of October, and this failure means that Locke, along with his assistant Darren Jackson, must now make the disheartening trudge to the Job Centre.

At the time of writing there aren’t any next manager odds available, while Raith are next in action on Saturday when they host table-topping Hibernian at Stark’s Park.

Locke has previously managed Hearts and Kilmarnock. At Hearts he led his troops to the Scottish League Cup Final, where they lost to St Mirren, but suffered relegation down to the Championship the following season. Meanwhile, he won a disappointing 11 of his 43 games at Killie, before resining with the club second-from-bottom in the SPL.
