Caretaker Docherty leaves Gills

Docherty and Iffy Onuora have been in caretaker charge
Gillingham's joint caretaker boss Mick Docherty has left the League One club.

The assistant manager had been joint caretaker boss with Iffy Onuora since Ronnie Jepson's resignation as manager in early September.

"Doc was left in an almost impossible situation," chairman Paul Scally told the Kent club's website.

"It was a tough call, but I've made the decision in the best interests of our football club, and I'm getting ever closer to naming our new manager."

The Gills were thrashed 5-0 at Swindon on Saturday, leading Scally to offer free tickets to any Gills fans who travelled to the game.

Docherty admitted after the match that he and coach Onuora did not expect to be in the running for the manager's job any more.

"If you were to say that we were to have a sniff at the position, we certainly don't now," Docherty said.

"We are losing like this too often, having lost 4-0 to Nottingham Forest."

The Gills had won two, lost two and drawn one of their five league games under Docherty and Onuora.
