FORMER Kilmarnock boss Lee Clark has been sacked by League One side Bury.
Ex-Celtic assistant gaffer Alan Thompson will also depart Gigg Lane with the club struggling 23rd in the division, just one point off bottom spot.
Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Doncaster was Bury’s fourth consecutive loss and their tenth of the season.
A club statement read: “Bury Football Club can confirm that after a meeting between the chairman and Lee Clark, it was decided that Lee would step down as manager with immediate effect.
“As part of the changes, Alan Thompson will also leave his role as assistant manager.
“The club wish Lee and Alan all the best for the future.”
Clark added: “I have enjoyed my time at Bury enormously and I wish the board, the players and the supporters all the very best for this season and beyond.”
The former Huddersfield, Birmingham and Blackpool chief quit Killie to take charge at Bury on a two-and-a-half year contract in February.
