Brian McDermott was sacked as Leeds United manager last night which prompted a fans protest outside Elland Road overnight.

The Whites are on the verge of being taken over by businessman Massimo Cellino but supporters refused to allow the Italian to leave the ground last night after the new of McDermott’s sacking.

Leeds went into the transfer window with a positivity about the club and a chance of making the play offs realistic and they signed two impressive wingers in Jimmy Kebe and Cameron Stewart.

Since then however, performances on the pitch have deteriorated and the club had received and rejected numerous bids for main man Ross McCormack.

McCormack came out and committed himself to the club yesterday afternoon after the club rejected a £4million bid from Cardiff, stating that McDermott’s role at the club was crucial to him staying.

Just two hours later McDermott was sacked and the Scottish forward was clearly angry with the decision made by the clubs new owners.

“To be honest I’m absolutely gutted. I had a really close relationship with the manager, as you know he made me the club captain recently, and I said about a couple of hours ago, I was looking forward to continuing to work with Leeds United and Brian McDermott,” McCormack told Sky Sports.

“Obviously things have changed a lot quicker than people imagine.

“I’m very happy and content at the club, but I think part of that was Brian McDermott and obviously if I had known earlier on that this was going to happen, I would have a right decision to make.

“At the moment it’s still very raw, I’m absolutely gutted.”

Leeds face Huddersfield at home today where there are set to be a number of protests by supporters.

          And the loans we’re being linked with are two journey men who can’t get into the Cagliari side.. Sounds very promising.
