Southampton making plans for Nigel Adkins aftermath as fans show appreciation for sacked former Scunthorpe United boss
White hankies were waved in the crowd and Nigel Adkins masks donned as many Southampton fans lamented the departure of the former Scunthorpe United boss - sacked by the Saints on Friday.
During last night's top flight 0-0 draw with Everton, spectators showed their support for Nige, who many feel was hard done by.
However, the powers-that-be felt they wanted a new man at the helm to help them steer clear of relegation.
International midfielder Grant McCann (@grantmccann11), who played under Nigel Adkins at Scunthorpe United, Tweeted yesterday: "White hankies out at St Mary's tonight so I will be waving one in front of the tele in respect to Nigel Adkins."
