The Rugby Park side, who are yet to win in the league this season, lost 2-0 at home to Ross County on Saturday and following a board meeting, the two parties have decided to go their separate ways.

McCulloch has only been in charge for three months on a permanent basis. He replaced Lee Clark, who left to join in Bury in February.
