Raith Rovers sack manager Gary Locke

The Raith Rovers board decided enough was enough on Tuesday night and sacked manager Gary Locke after watching the Kirkcaldy team crash to a sixth successive league defeat with the 1-0 loss to Morton.

The former Hearts and Kilmarnock boss had not tasted victory since October in a run stretching back 14 matches and headed up the Stark’s Park tunnel to a chorus of boos from the disgruntled home support.

The 41-year-old was locked in talks with the Rovers board after the final
whistle, and in a short 26-word statement on the club’s website around 10.35pm it was announced that both Locke and assistant Darren Jackson, the former Dundee United striker, had left “with immediate effect.”

Locke’s departure comes just eight months after he replaced Ray McKinnon when the latter took over the reins at Dundee United.
