OWEN Coyle has quit as Ross County manager after just five months in charge.

The Ladbrokes Premiership bottom club revealed both Coyle and assistant Sandy Stewart had left the club with immediate effect.

In a statement on the club’s website, Coyle said: “Myself and the chairman had a chat on Monday and after some reflective thought I felt for the good of Ross County - and the challenging situation with my family being in England - it was in everyone’s best interests for me to offer my resignation, which the chairman duly accepted.”

County’s clash with Partick Thistle is one of very few matches still on this weekend after the weather decimated the card. St Johnstone’s meeting with Hamilton at McDiarmid Park tomorrow was one of nine SPFL games called off yesterday. All four Scottish Cup quarter-finals are on at present.
