The Buddies have lost three of their four opening league fixtures and sit second bottom following their return to the Premiership. Record Sport understands the former Hibs manager will become the first top-flight managerial casualty of the campaign - less than three months after accepting the job. It is believed a compensation package is being worked on and that Stubbs won't be in the dugout for Celtic's visit to Paisley at the end of the international break on Friday, September 14. Stubbs replaced Championship-winning gaffer Jack Ross on a three-year deal in June following his move to Sunderland Jim McIntyre is in line to replace him (Image: SNS Group) St Mirren opened their Premiership campaign with a 2-1 victory under Dundee but that success has been followed by worrying displays against Rangers and Livingston. Those losses were preceded by an indifferent Betfred Cup campaign that included draws with Spartans and Queen's Park before a 4-0 thumping from Aberdeen. Stubbs' side shipped another four goals away at Hearts on Saturday and that has proved the final straw for the Paisley club's hierarchy and now former Ross County boss McIntyre is hot favourite to step in. The 46-year-old has been out of work since being sacked by Ross County just under a year ago. McIntyre recently rejected an offer from Falkirk to replace Paul Hartley and is now on a verge of a top-flight return. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/alan-stubbs-set-st-mirren-13185691 Edited September 3, 2018 by Buddie Marvelous 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
