“We have acted swiftly to appoint a new head coach who we believe will take us towards achieving our goals this season and beyond,” added Rahic.
“We care massively about this football club and believe this decision has been made at the right time, with everything very much to play for.
“We are now looking forward to naming our new head coach and moving forward, together, in a positive manner.”
