Bolton sack manager Gary Megson

Bolton Wanderers are looking for a new manager after sacking boss Gary Megson.

Bolton are currently third from bottom in the Premier League and in their most recent match threw away a 2-0 lead before drawing 2-2 with Hull City.

That match was played at Bolton's home ground and fans of the club could be heard booing Megson and the team.

With the team in relegation trouble and the transfer window about to open, it seems Bolton bosses have decided they want a new man in charge.

Former Manchester City manager Mark Hughes and Sir Alex Ferguson's son Darren have both been linked with the job.

Megson has been in charge at the Reebok Stadium since October 2007 and in that first season he did make sure the club weren't relegated.

Even so, Bolton fans have never really got behind the manager and with the team struggling on the pitch too, the board have decided to get rid of Megson.
