FRANK DE BOER was yesterday sacked as Crystal Palace boss just 77 days following four games, four defeats and no goals scored.
The former Rangers star joined the London outfit on June 26 to replace Sam Allardyce.
De Boer, who made 17 appearances at Ibrox in 2004, is now among the top 10 shortest managerial stints in English football.
Ironically, he survived longer than Alex McLeish, the gaffer who took him to Scotland. Big Eck was dismissed after only 41 days during a disastrous stay at Nottingham Forest in season 2012/13.
Another former Rangers player on the now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t list is Henning Berg who was fired by Blackburn Rovers following a 57-day interlude in 2012 when he won only one of 10 games.
Celtic’s legendary supremo Jock Stein spent 44 days at Leeds United before returning across the border to take charge of Scotland in 1978.
Spare a thought, though, for former West Ham forward Leroy Rosenoir who hardly had time to sit behind the manager’s desk at Torquay United.
He had been announced as the new coach just 10 MINUTES before the club was taken over on May 17, 2007. His contract was terminated immediately and Paul Buckle got the job.
