`Done deal' fell through

cliffhangerDaily Record: St Johnstone and Paul Cook fail to reach agreement over Perth manager's position



It read: "The current manager of Sligo Rovers has been in highly-publicised talks with St Johnstone about the vacant post but the two parties have been unable to reach agreement on personal terms and the club therefore moves on to other options."



Coach Alec Cleland and experienced player Jody Morris will continue in temporary charge of the team as the squad prepares for Saturday's home meeting with St Mirren.

Rangers skipper David Weir, Livingston manager Gary Bollan and Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin are among the bookies' favourites for the job.

Experienced out-of-work bosses including Jim Jefferies and Jimmy Calderwood have also been tipped for the post.
