He talks a good game though, and folk will believe him. Pundits and media just look at his passing football and don't look any deeper when it isn't working. He blames the players all the time and the pundits & media believe him.

Raith up 1-0 at HT but still 9th place with St Mirren drawing 0-0 with Hibs.

Stenny 0-1 Brechin
Airdrie 1-1 QP
Stranraer 0-0 East Fife

Alloa, Brechin & Airdrie in the play offs if it stays as it is.

Hibs 1-1 St Mirren
Raith 1-1 Ayr

Looking good for St Mirren now.

Airdrie 3-2 QP
Stenny 1-1 Brechin
Stranraer 1-1 East Fife

Still looking like Alloa, Airdrie and Brechin will join Raith in the play offs, but if East Fife get another goal and Stenny score against Brechin then East Fife would grab 4th place.

Peterhead just went 3-2 up against Alloa so Stenny needs to win against Brechin now or they're relegated. It is all change from one minute to the next in the last league game of the season, exciting stuff.

That's it, results are in.

Hibs 1-1 St Mirren
Raith 2-1 Aye.
Dumbarton 0-1 Falkirk

St Mirren, Dumbarton and Raith finish on 39 points but Raith are 9th on GD.

Championship play off places are:

Raith
Alloa
Airdrie
Brechin

Looking forward to seeing Hughes post matc rant as he puts the blame on his players again. Laughing

Given they won after playing 86 mins with 10 men he'll probably praise them for showing the fight they should have shown last week.

I think they will beat Brechin but might have a fight on their hands with Alloa or Airdrie

Good fighting spirit from Peterhead to beat Alloa after being behind twice.

Hope East Kilbride can get past Cowdenbeath

Yaeh as shite as Airdrie are, the goal scoring form Ryan is on they could very well beat Alloa, who themselves haven't been great recently. This play off final will be won by the team that is the least shite rather than being best because Brechin and Raith are pretty keek tae..

Brechin just scored with a penalty, was quite funny watching it on a live feed from the Raith end, their fans were going mental claiming the Brechin player cheated. Laughing  Mon Brechin.

Andy Ryan puts Airdrie 1-0 up too.

Airdrie 1-0 Alloa
Brechin 1-1 Raith

Still all to play for.

Raith looked just as bad as Brechin in that live feed I watched in the first half, was all punting long balls back and forth.
Andy Ryan being the difference in the other game. Should've given him a dead leg so he couldn't play in the 2nd leg. Laughing

Makes Saturday a bit interesting, could end up with a Brechin v Airdrie final, will happily take the 12 points next season if that's the case Laughing

Would rather Alloa or Airdrie come up, they're closer than Brechin. Airdrie could run out of steam in the final though, reading through their match thread it looks like they aren't using their subs until very late on and are reliant on their starting eleven. Some of their players looked knackered around the 65th minute but their manager didn't use a sub till 86 mins (taking off Beany) and then Ryan on the 90th min, that should give Alloa an advantage in the 2nd leg.

I think their last defeat was with them putting out a fringe team, still think they'll get through in the 2nd leg though and Airdrie will tire in the 2nd half.

Hoping Airdrie beat Alloa now, just so Beany scores the winning goal against Raith and runs over to Hughes with a big grin on his face. Laughing

Glad we let Liam Watt go to Brechin, scored the equaliser to take it to penalties.

Brechin v Alloa final, can't see past an Alloa win.

Oh and what are the odds wee Bobby missed his pen as a parting gift to Hughes. Laughing  Wouldn't mind us signing him up for next season, Barr, Mullin and Cadden on the wings, with one coming on as a 2nd half sub would run defenders ragged.

I have nothing against Raith, good friends in the Lang Toon but Yogi has taken them down cause they may have been slipping under Locke but they went into free fall under Hughes. So I hope they punt him and wouldn't be surprised to see Darren Young take over, can't see Paul Hartley wanting to drop down to 3rd tier again

Hughes has left the building. Can go back to playing golf and enthralling all his golf buddies with tales of how good he was, using salt and pepper cellars to demonstrate his tactical nous.

Reading Pie and Bovril and a Raith fan said Hughes went into the dressing room and told the players they were all pish and could go find another club. One of the players said what about all your feck ups then and it all kicked off. Then Hughes was told it was him that was going and the players would be called into a meeting on Tues to discuss their future.

What an arsehole Hughes is.

That is hilarious!

Just as funny is a tersely worded brief statement on RRFC's official web site which simply states they have parted company with the manager & his assistant. No word of thanks or best wishes. Maybe that will come later but the clear implication is that the ownership holds him responsible.
