Millar, 45, was a well-known face when he took charge of the Bully Wee last April, having previously played for the club and managed local Junior side Cumbernauld United.

However, a dismal run of form, which has seen Clyde lose 10 of the 14 league games they have played so far, and winning only one, has cost Millar his job.

A statement uploaded to the club’s website yesterday afternoon read: “Clyde Football Club can confirm that, following discussions, Stuart Millar has been relieved of his duties as head coach and will leave the club with immediate effect.

“Stuart cared deeply for the club and always worked extremely hard, with a passion and commitment for the team that he had played for. We share his regret and disappointment that things did not work out as expected.

“However, due to the continued run of poor results it was felt that a change was necessary at this time. Everyone connected with Clyde FC wishes him all the very best in the future.”
