Former Rangers manager Stuart McCall has been sacked from his managerial role with Scunthorpe United.
McCall – who also played for Rangers – had been in charge at Glanford Park since August. He leaves the club two points off the drop zone in League One with seven games left to play.
The former Motherwell boss had guided Scunthorpe to five wins in six matches to bring them to mid-table by the end of January. However, just two wins since then see them sit 18th in the table.
The midfielder was an integral part of the club’s Nine In a Row winning side and the Scotsman has always been well thought of at Ibrox. He also played for Bradford City, Everton and Sheffield United in his career, earning 40 Scotland caps.
But his time in management has not been quite so successful. McCall managed Bradford and Motherwell before taking the job at Rangers.
It was the latter of the two which defined a tumultuous time in charge at the club. Motherwell dumped Rangers out of the Scottish Premiership promotion playoffs in an embarrassing 6-1 aggregate defeat.
His position at Scunthorpe United is terminated with immediate effect and we wish the former Gers icon all the best for the future.
McCall’s time in charge at Ibrox was a difficult period, and one of McCall’s old teammates has been speaking out about those responsible.
