Next Scottish Premiership manager most and least likely to be sacked including Celtic and Rangers bosses

Steven MacLean was given the boot by St Johnstone last month - but which top-flight boss could be next to face the sack?

Steven MacLean recently became the THIRD Scottish Premiership manager to be relieved of his duties by struggling St Johnstone - and fans will be questioning who might be next to follow suit.

Rookie boss MacLean, who was the bookies favourite to lose his job before the new season got underway, was sacked on October 29th after a dismal start to the season for the Perth club. In the process, he picked up the unwanted recorded of the shortest managerial reign in Saints history after just 19 games in charge yielded just four wins with nearly a 50 per cent loss rate.

He followed in the footsteps of former Rangers boss Michael Beale and ex-Hibs manager Lee Johnson who departed Easter Road just a matter of weeks into the new campaign. There appears to be a morbid fascination in Scotland as to who the identity of the manager to leave their post will be. With bosses under constant pressure to deliver results, a handful of top-flight clubs have endured a challenging few week and supporters won’t be best satisfied with how their team is performing.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers appears to be winning fans over once again after his appointment as Ange Postecoglou's replacement in the summer was met with mixed views. Sitting eight points clear at the top of the table, the Hoops have been strong domestically but are facing the prospect of another early Champions League exit.

Rangers boss Philippe Clement is just in the door at Ibrox and will be given time to stamp his authority on the squad, with the Belgian already plotting for the January transfer window as he continues to assess the current crop of players at his disposal.
