Caldwell was appointed manager of Partick Thistle in October 2018 after they were relegated from the Scottish Premiership.

But the former Scotland defender has lasted less than a year in the job with The Jags sitting second bottom of the Scottish Championship after not winning a game in their opening five fixtures.

A statement released today by Partick Thistle read: "Earlier today, the board of Partick Thistle Football Club informed manager Gary Caldwell that his contract has been terminated with immediate effect."
