Former Wigan Athletic manager Gary Caldwell is thought to be one of the names being considered for the managerial vacancy at Ladbrokes Championship club Partick Thistle according to The Scottish Sun.

The Jags are currently managerless after sacking former boss Alan Archibald earlier this week following a poor start to the season in the second tier of the Scottish game.

Partick Thistle are thought to be keen to make a swift managerial appointment with the club already 10 points behind surprise league leaders Ayr United. A number of names are being linked to the role including former Wigan Athletic manager Caldwell.

The 36-year-old has been out of work for over a year since being dismissed by then-Sky Bet League Two club Chesterfield. Caldwell could be interviewed for the job at Firhill later this week according to reports.

In his first job in management, Caldwell guided Wigan Athletic to promotion from Sky Bet League One. The Latics were 2015/2016 champions under his guidance, finishing two points clear of second placed Burton Albion. The Scot lasted just two months of the following season with Wigan Athletic suffering from a poor start to the new campaign.

Caldwell’s next job saw him work in difficult circumstances at Chesterfield where he won just three of his 29 matches in charge.

As a player, Caldwell came up against potential new employers Partick Thistle regularly when playing for both Hibernian and Celtic.
