Tony Mowbray has left Celtic in the wake of last night's 4-0 thrashing at the hands of St Mirren, according to reports.

It is believed Mowbray met chief executive Peter Lawwell at the Hoops' Lennoxtown training ground, though the club were refusing to officially confirm or deny their manager's departure.

Yesterday evening's humiliating defeat in Paisley means Celtic are 10 points behind Rangers, who also have two games in hand.

It has also been reported that assistant manager Mark Venus and first-team coach Peter Grant have left the club.

Last night's defeat was the 13th of Mowbray's tenure, which began when he succeeded Gordon Strachan in the summer.

He joined from West Brom, who were understood to have secured around £2m in compensation for his services.
