LEE MCCULLOCH has decided to leave his role as Kilmarnock gaffer, just eight games into the season.
Kilmarnock sit bottom of the table, with three points after eight and after the 1-0 defeat to Ross County, there were questions about whether the position of the management team was tenable.
The Rugby Park side released a statement this evening announcing that the management team of McCulloch and Peter Leven have left their role by mutual consent.
“The Kilmarnock Football Club Limited can announce the departure of manager Lee McCulloch by mutual consent.
“Lee took charge of the first team in February this year following the departure of Lee Clark before becoming permanent manager after ensuring the club retained our Scottish Premiership status.
“Assistant manager Peter Leven has also departed the club. Lee and Peter would like to thank the directors, players, staff and supporters for their assistance during their time at the club.
“Everyone at Kilmarnock FC thanks Lee and Peter for their hard work and dedication during their time with the club and we wish both all the best for the future.”
The Ayrshire side must now find a manager that is willing to come in to the bottom club and turn things around.
