Kilmarnock have confirmed the departure of manager Alex Dyer by mutual consent following yesterday’s 3-2 defeat to St Johnstone in the Scottish league.
Dyer is an English former footballer and played mainly as a defender for eleven clubs in a seventeen-year professional career before becoming a manager.
The club said that “recent results and performances have been disappointing and with 24 points from 25 Premiership matches, we believe this is the right time for a change”.
Billy Bowie said: “This was a tough decision for the club and not one which was made lightly. However in light of recent results and in the interest of preserving our Scottish Premiership status, we feel this is the correct time for a change.
“Alex is a great man who I have the utmost respect for and he will always be warmly welcomed back to Rugby Park.
“I want to thank Alex for his important contribution to some truly wonderful days here at Kilmarnock and I wish him every success in the future.”
