Stuart Kettlewell has been sacked as manager of Ross County after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Hamilton Academical in Dingwall.
The 36-year-old was relieved of his duties after full time with Ross County now four points behind Hamiton Academical and failing to win a game in the Premiership since September.
Kettlewell, who took charge of the club as co-manager with Steven Ferguson in March 2018, says he had no hard feelings about the decision.
He accepted that the form of the team wasn’t good enough.
“It is a sore one as I want to fight and scrap and do the best I can for the football club,” he said.
“I have done that for a long period of time but results aren’t good enough and we find ourselves bottom of the table and cut ourselves adrift on the back of the result today.
“I understand football and there is no ill feeling from me towards the football club or the chairman.
“I am grateful for the opportunity, there has been a lot of high points.
“It is a bad day for me and the football club.
"I wish them success moving forward and where they go next and hopefully somebody can get a tune out of them and get to a situation where they are not sitting at the foot of the table.”
