Gareth Southgate, the Middlesborough manager, has been sacked with immediate effect. The news, announced late tonight, means that three Premiership managers have had the chop in the last 24 hours.
Chelsea boss Phil Scolari was the biggest casualty whilst Southgate, and Portsmouths' Tony Adams were expected to be fired, the announcement still completes another eventful day in top flight football.
With these posts available there are sure to be many names thrown into the hat and many people trying to return to football. Top of the list are Kevin Keegan, Graeme Souness and Roy Keane. Jose Mourinho is also an outsider to be reinstated as Chelsea boss.
