Clydebank became the second crisis-torn Scottish outfit in 24 hours to axe their manager, with Tommy Coyne being sacked by the administrators running the Second Division club.

Administrators PKF have taken the decision to ditch Coyne after First Division Morton's administrators showed Cappielow boss Allan Evans the door on Wednesday.

The decision was taken at the request of David McGhie, the businessman who looks set to take over Clydebank.

Former St Mirren manager Tony Fitzpatrick will now assist player-coach Fraser Wishart with the day-to-day running of the homeless Bankies but insists he is not interested in taking the job on a permanent basis.

PKF's Bryan Jackson said: "We can confirm that Tommy Coyne has not received a renewal of his contract, which was taken at the request of the prospective purchaser.

"Tony Fitzpatrick has been engaged by the prospective purchaser on a consultancy basis to assist Fraser Wishart.

"We will continue to seek the agreement of the creditors in order that a successful sale of the club can be achieved."
