St.Mirren have given English championship side Ipswich Town permission to speak to manager Jack Ross about the vacant role at Portman Road. Ross led St.Mirren to the Scottish Championship title this season and with that promotion to the Scottish Premiership for the first time since 2015.

Named as PFA Manager of the Year, beating the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Neil Lennon and Steve Clarke to the award, he won 23 out of 36 games in the league this season.

Ipswich finished 12th in the Championship this season and have been managerless since Mick McCarthy walked out on the club in April, after criticising a section of the Ipswich supporters labelling them 'pathetic' and 'disgraceful'.

McCarthy was in charge at Portman Road for six years.
