Former EFL boss quits his job ONE HOUR after being named Manager of the Season | The Sun

GARY BOWYER has left Dundee FC just an hour after being named the Scottish Championship Manager of the Year.

The former Blackburn Rovers boss took over as manager of the Scottish side in June.

He managed to guide them to promotion back into the Scottish Premiership and was given the award as a result.

But despite his title winning credentials he won’t be staying around to help keep them in the top division.

The club announced that Bowyer would be leaving via an official statement.

The statement read: “Gary helped the club achieve its objective of an immediate return to the cinch Premiership and we are grateful to him for leading us to the cinch Championship and automatic promotion.

“Now is the time for certainty as we enter a critical summer of work in the transfer market and on the training ground, to ensure the first-team squad is ready to compete in the Premiership and remain in the top division.”

Dundee will now be without a manager until they can find the right fit for their return to the Scottish Premiership.

The club’s managing director, John Nelms, commented on Bowyer’s exit too.

He said: “Given the importance of the weeks and months ahead, I felt it was necessary to ensure we are all aligned on the direction needed to ensure the club is ready for its return to the Premiership.
