Gary Caldwell sacked as Partick Thistle manager

Gary Caldwell has been sacked as boss by Scottish Championship side Partick Thistle.
Former Celtic and Scotland defender Caldwell and his manager Brian Kerr have had their contracts.
The board agreed on the conclusion after a prolonged run of bad form leading to Thistle languishing second-bottom of the second tier win in their five games this year.
Partick Thistle chairman David Beattie explained:“That is not an outcome anyone desired, however we believe this decision is in the best interests of the team and we can wait no longer to make a shift.
„On behalf of the board, I’d love to thank Gary and Brian for their efforts for Partick Thistle and wish them every success in their future careers.“
The Glasgow club had been relegated from the top-flight at 2018 and narrowly avoided relegation last year, using Caldwell, 36, taking over in October last year after Alan Archibald’s passing.
Chief executive Gerry Britton, academy director Scott Allison and striker Kenny Miller will require charge for Thistle’s home match against Dunfermline Athletic on Saturday, using a League Cup clash against Celtic following that on Wednesday.
