St Johnstone have parted company with manager Callum Davidson with the Perth side 9th in the cinch Premiership, four points above the relegation places.
A statement on the clubs website read:
“THE Football Club can today announce that it has mutually parted company with manager Callum Davidson.
“Callum has been in charge since the summer of 2020 and led us to that incredible Scottish Cup and League Cup success in his first season. But, after a meeting between Chairman Steve Brown and Callum today, it’s been mutually agreed that a change is required.”
Brown added: “First and foremost, Callum is a friend and I hold him in high regard which is why this has been an extremely difficult decision to come to. But we had an open and honest conversation and we both agreed that we must do what is right for St Johnstone.~
“We must always put our Football Club first. Callum has been a brilliant manager for St Johnstone and led us to that Cup Double in 2021 and then European football. But we feel results haven’t been good enough in recent weeks and it’s best for the Football Club to make a change at this stage.”
“I’d like to thank Callum for his service and dedication to us and wish him every success in the future. He is a St Johnstone legend and always will be.”
Assistant manager, Steven MacLean, will take interim charge until further notice.
