Just under a month until they face Scotland for the first time in their history, Gibraltar have sacked manager Allen Bula.
A statement published on the official FA website, read: “The Gibraltar Football Association can confirm that it has parted company with National A Team Manager Allen Bula, with immediate effect.
“After a thorough and careful investigation, into internal matters, the Gibraltar FA has come to the decision that an immediate change was appropriate. It is not a decision that has been reached lightly or hastily.
“The Gibraltar FA is committed to safeguarding football on the Rock and ensuring that the National Team remains the pinnacle of Gibraltarian football. Consequently the search for a new Gibraltar National Team Manager will begin immediately.”
Rooted to the bottom of Group D, Gibraltar have been looked upon as the whipping boys of the group having lost all four games played so far and shipping in 21 goals with no reply.
They are set to face a resurgent Scotland under manager Gordon Strachan, with the Tartan Army confident of victory and hopeful of a large score in favour of the Scots at Hampden Park.
