St Mirren boss Jack Ross is a potential candidate for the vacant Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic jobs, according to the Evening Standard.
The 41-year-old has taken St Mirren to the top of the Scottish Championship and they are twelve points clear. Ross looks to have clinched the title already and is being linked with various jobs in England.
He was reportedly a target for Barnsley after Paul Heckingbottom left Oakwell to join their Championship rivals Leeds United. However, he turned them down.
Ross is now thought to be on Ipswich Town’s managerial shortlist. They have confirmed that Mick McCarthy will leave at the end of the season. Ross, along with names such as Lincoln City’s Danny Cowley, are in the running for the position.
Charlton Athletic is another job that Ross is getting linked with. The League One side are looking for a new manager after Karl Robinson left them to join Oxford United. Lee Bowyer is in caretaker charge and has done an impressive job with them so far.
Ross played for the likes of Falkirk, Hartlepool United and Hamilton in his playing days. He started his managerial career at Alloa Athletic before making the switch to St Mirren in October 2016. He kept them up last season and was approached by Dundee but turned them down. He has now guided St Mirren to the top of the table.
There is no doubt that Ross is an exciting young manager and has a big future ahead of him. He could be a very shrewd appointment by either Ipswich Town or Charlton Athletic.
