Dundee United have sacked Jack Ross in the wake of their record home defeat by Celtic.

Jack Ross had just signed Ugandan forward Sadat Anaku from KCCA FC

The former Alloa, St Mirren, Sunderland, and Hibernian manager lasted just seven games in charge. United lost 9-0 to Celtic on Sunday to make it five consecutive defeats and 23 goals conceded in their last four games.

A club statement read: “Dundee United can confirm head coach Jack Ross has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect. Liam Fox will take charge of the first team on an interim basis with the focus now fully on Wednesday’s Premier Sports Cup match with Livingston.”

Ross was appointed on 20 June following the departure of Tam Courts to the Hungarian side Honved. The 46-year-old kicked off his reign with a Premiership draw against Kilmarnock and then a 1-0 Europa Conference League win over AZ Alkmaar at Tannadice.

However, after a 1-0 home defeat by Livingston, United went down 7-0 in the Netherlands to equal the worst result by a Scottish club in European competition. A 4-1 defeat by Hearts and a 3-0 home loss to St Mirren were followed by another capitulation against Celtic.
