Many Sunderland fans have expressed their respect for Jack Ross despite being sacked by their club.
Happy Jack Ross has gone?
The Scottish manager was dismissed this afternoon, just hours before their clash against Grimsby Town in the EFL Trophy.
Despite this, the club still only sit sixth in League One, with Ipswich now eight points ahead of them at the top of the tree.
Ross, 43, joined the club in May last year and was able to take Sunderland to Wembley twice in his only full year in charge. Unfortunately for him and the club, both resulted in losses – the EFL Trophy to Portsmouth as well as the play-off final to Charlton.
Many fans responded to the club Twitter with happiness, however, there were a select few who were grateful for the Scot’s commitment, even if they still believed he was right to depart.
Here are some of the responses below…
His team has lost twice this season, twice and 11 in his tenor with us and we’ve let him go…. what a joke

Thank you Jack.
It didn't work out but I can honestly say I'd have been chuffed if it had.
Good luck for the future.
