Phil Parkinson is set to continue as manager of Bolton Wanderers for the time being, The Bolton News have reported.
The 51-year-old took charge of Bolton in the summer of 2016, and lead them to promotion from League One in his first season at the club.
Wanderers only secured their Championship survival on the final day of the following campaign, and were relegated this season following a dismal campaign under Parkinson, that saw them win just eight and lose 30 of their 46 league games across the course of the campaign.
The club a set to start next season on -12 points following a points deduction for entering administration last month, and Parkinson’s long term future at the club is yet to be decided, although he will be in charge when the squad make their delayed return to pre-season on Monday.
Taking to Twitter to react to news that Parkinson will remain at the club for now, a number of Bolton fans appeared far from impressed with the decision.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.
