HARTLEPOOL UNITED has announced the sacking of former Celtic midfielder Paul Hartley after just nine league games with the club.

The final straw for the club was the 2-0 loss to Sutton, with the hierarchy not seeing any hope from the performance.
In a statement from the club, they confirmed that poor performance and lack of results drove the decision to release those in charge from their duties.
It’s going to be a long and tough season for the side, who look to be in a relegation battle already.
There are some big games just around the corner for the side, with an away cup tie against Morecambe in their next match. Hartlepool already have a win in the group stages of the cup, looking to add another to their tally on Tuesday night.
