Jack Ross has been sacked as Sunderland manager, as confirmed by the club’s official website.
With the Scotsman now gone, it is not only fans of the Black Cats who seem to be interested in seeing who will be appointed to take the hot seat at the Stadium of Light:
#SAFC announce this afternoon that it has terminated the contract of manager Jack Ross.

There have been fans of various clubs, especially those based in Scotland, who have been offering their manager to Sunderland as a replacement, so they can get them out of their own club.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes seems to be especially unpopular, with his side currently fourth in the SPFL table.
Sunderland will likely want to get their manager situation sorted relatively quickly, as this would allow the new man to have some time to implement their philosophy due to the Fleetwood Town game being postponed.
Even so, it is pretty unlikely disgruntled fans offering their manager away will make a difference to the Black Cats’ selection process.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from hopeful fans of various clubs, can be seen below:
