‘CV littered with failure’ – Mixed reaction from Derby County fans, as McClaren loses his job again

Derby County have sacked manager Steve McClaren, with the club’s season seemingly heading for a mid-table finish, confirms the club’s official website.

Friday night’s defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion was the final straw for Derby’s chairman Mel Morris, who announced McClaren’s departure on Sunday evening.

McClaren replaced Nigel Pearson in October, for his second stint in-charge at the Pride Park Stadium, after Derby suffered a disappointing start to the season.

An initial upturn in results saw the Rams move into the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off zone, but a winless February, followed by an inconsistent start to March has seen McClaren lose his job.

The Rams are currently tenth in the Championship table, trailing sixth placed Sheffield Wednesday by ten-points, with just nine fixtures of the season remaining.

Derby have trip to the City Ground on Saturday lunchtime, to face Nottingham Forest, in their next league outing.

With Derby now looking for their third manager of the 2016/17 campaign, here is how fans are reacting on Twitter…
