Doncaster Rovers players have taken to Twitter to express their shock at Sean O’Driscoll’s departure from the club.

Striker Billy Sharp wrote: “Surprised at the news I’ve heard this morning, gaffer gone? dean saunders in? #shocked”

Martin Woods appeared particularly disappointed: “Gutted at the news gaffers sacked! done a great job here...#shocked”

“Shocked waking up to the News!” said Ryan Mason, on a season long loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

John Oster put it simply with “#shocked”

Simon Gillett revealed he first heard O’Driscoll had left by watching Sky Sports News.
