Ian Ferguson sacked as Perth Glory coach

The Perth Glory's dire run of A-League form appears to have claimed the scalp of coach Ian Ferguson, who has reportedly been sacked with his team at the bottom of the ladder.

The Glory, which made last year's grand final under Ferguson's leadership, has lost its past four games to fall to the foot of the table with only 19 points from 20 games.

Glory owner Tony Sage has called a press conference for 11am at which he is expected to announce Ferguson's departure.

"Ian Ferguson has been sacked Alistair Edwards new Glory coach," Radio 6PR and Channel Nine reporter Peter Vlahos tweeted on Monday morning.

Mining magnate Sage, who has reportedly been afflicted with a heart issue in recent weeks, has recently returned from overseas.

Ferguson's expected departure will follow the resignation of chief executive Paul Kelly in early December.
