Summer sacking number one

A league cup final and 10th place in the SPL haven't been enough to save Gus MacPherson at St Mirren:

Gus MacPherson, the league's longest serving manager, is parting ways with St Mirren after almost seven years as manager with the Paisley club.
The Buddies avoided relegation to finish this season in 10th place in the Scottish Premier League.

A club statement read: "We would like to thank Mr MacPherson for all his work and the improvement in the club's league standing since his arrival.

"The board feel that the relationship had run its course and that the club requires a change of direction." (BBC)
A wind of change at the club?

This comes 24 hours after Gordon Scott left the board, with only the must cursory of explanations:
This afternoon Club Director, Gordon Scott resigned from the Board of St Mirren Football Club.

The Board of Directors would like to thank Gordon for all his efforts during his time on the Board and they would also like to wish him the best of success for the future.
The club website also refers to the outgoing manager as "Angus." Surely a first?

Interesting times ahead for St Mirren fans.
