St Mirren fans have been saying they wanted him gone since league cup group games as they could see the shambles that was developing even then. Sacking him now however means new manager has to work with dross that Stubbs signed until January so far chance their fucked anyway.

Horrific timing.

The other thing is, he will be back on BT Sport as an "expert" pundit giving his views on how games should be played.

BBC Scotland Gossip page:

Jim Goodwin is the favourite to replace axed Alan Stubbs.

Gus MacPherson is a front-runner to replace Stubbs.
 
Jim McIntyre is thought to be the front-runner to succeed Stubbs.

The BBC gossip column just quotes the papers so it's no surprise they're full of shit.

St Mirren announce Oran Kearney as their new manager, giving him a 3 year contract. He's the son in law of Kenny Shiels who I'm sure you're all familiar with.

Bit of a gamble this, Stubbs was a sensible choice, he had experience in this league, albeit it never worked out ( in the very short time he got ) In saying that, perhaps Kearney will do a great job, time will tell.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Kearney was allegedly the runner up to Stubbs in the original interview process.

Stubbs is an imposter of a manager who got lucky with a Scottish cup win. He had two goes at getting hibs out of the championship and failed miserably so why st Mirren thought he’d be any use with a lower budget in a higher league god only knows. He was also rank rotten at Rotherham so i’d say his managerial days at any half decent level are over.

Neil McCann and Gary Neville are two peas in a pod.

They are/were passionate pundits but neither are leaders of men.

After one disastrous stint in management, they won't go again.

The chairmen who employed them are insane human beings.

The very man to lead the blue Jutes gloriously down into the Championship.

Surely to f@ck the Dundee board wouldn't be so stupid as to appoint that Hun c@nt?

Hibs have appointed a guy called Paul Heckingbottom.  Was at Leeds (I think) for a few games?

He had a shit win percentage there and has a shit record generally.

Very strange appointment, possibly as bad as Stewrat Milne's choices over 20+ years.

Heckingbottom had a couple of good spells as caretaker at Barnsley but it all went to shit once he got the gig permanently. Not even Hibs first choice according to the spoon burners in work. Apparently Appleton was due to be announced on Tuesday but there was a disagreement around the length of pay off if Hibs sacked him and deal fell through.

Will probably have good knowledge of players in the lower English leagues, especially those north of the Midlands and Hibs will be expecting to get a few in fairly cheaply.

I'll predict here and now he will last 18 months tops.

Strictly speaking, he hasn't left, just going for talks (as McInnes did with Sunderland).

Anyway, Lennon in charge for their cup tie v Hibs? Tasty.

Reading the various reports, I'd be surprised if he doesn't take the offer although I'm surprised it's Leicester that's turned his head. He can't possibly repeat what Ranieri did unless the owner's life was insured for 3.2 billion and they've promised that 93.5% of that will be fully available to him in the football budget. It's not "a big club" and I thought he might have considered himself worthy of an Arsenal or other big club. Then again, it might be that he really believes in himself and shows big balls to take it on. Or of course, a life-changing size of contract makes it a no brainier. Don't like his style as a person but he does have management ability so will be interesting to see how he does. This whole thing further shows how small we are as a football nation and how money has corrupted the game. Lennon good enough for Celtic but not good enough for AFC according to many of our fans? Bizarre. He's three times the man McInnes is.
