Former Ross County boss in pole position to replace sacked St Mirren manager Alan Stubbs

St Mirren are on the hunt for their third manager in less than four months after sacking Alan Stubbs.

Stubbs, who replaced Jack Ross earlier in the summer, went on to win only two of his nine matches in all competitions before he was axed on Monday with St Mirren 11th in the SPL - with three points from four league games.

Stubbs’ last two jobs in management, at St Mirren and Rotherham, have lasted a combined eight months with the 46-year-old winning only three of his 23 matches.

In a statement the Buddies said:

“Careful consideration was given to this decision and the search for a new manager will begin immediately.

“The club would like to thank Alan for his work during his time in charge at The Simple Digital Arena and wish him the best for the future.

“The club will keep supporters informed as new arrangements are put in place and thank them for their patience and ongoing support.”

Attention has now swiftly turned to who St Mirren will appoint as Stubbs’ replacement.

The early favourite for the vacancy is the former Ross County, Queen of the South and Dunfermline Athletic manager Jim McIntyre who can be backed at just 2/5 in the betting.

McIntyre, 46, previously led Ross County to 2015/16 Scottish League Cup glory - the club’s first major trophy - but has been out of work since he suffered the sack last September, and last week rejected an offer to become the new Falkirk manager.

Other names in the frame include Jim Goodwin, Gary Caldwell, Gus McPherson and Robbie Neilson.
