Kilmarnock have announced the sacking of manager Angelo Alessio after just six months in charge.
Antonio Conte’s former right-hand man with Juventus, Italy and Chelsea was charged with continuing the success Steve Clarke brought to Rugby Park.
But he endured a troubled reign, starting with a humiliating Europa League exit at the hands of Welsh minnows Connah’s Quay Nomads.
The Ladbrokes Premiership club now say he has been “relieved of his position” on the back of four league games without a win.

A club statement read: “Everyone at the club would like to thank Angelo for his efforts during his time with Kilmarnock and we wish him every success for the future.
“Alex Dyer will take charge of first-team duties on an interim basis.
“We will provide a further update for supporters in due course.”
