Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to dismissal of Stuart Gray

Former Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Southampton midfielder Stuart Gray has been sacked as the Sheffield Wednesday manager.

Sheffield Wednesday fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the dismissal of manager Stuart Gray.

Gray was sacked by the Championship club after 18 months in charge on Thursday evening.

The 55-year-old took charge of the Owls in November 2013 following the departure of Dave Jones - first on a caretaker-basis and was then given the role full time in January 2014.

The former Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa midfielder led Wednesday to a 16th-placed finish in the Championship in the 2013-14 season.

Wednesday ended up 13th in the league table in the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign with 60 points from 46 matches.

The dismissal of former Southampton midfielder Gray came out of the blue, as until Thursday evening there was no sign that the Englishman would be let go.

Following Wednesday’s decision to part company with Gray, the club’s fans took to Twitter to have their say.
