SACKED St Albans City boss Dave Anderson says he has not stopped laughing since chairman John Gibson gave him his cards via a Wednesday night phonecall.

The former Wimbledon boss's tenth and final league game in charge of the struggling Saints ended in a 4-0 reversal at Cambridge City on New Year's Day and that, it seems was the final insult for Gibson, who is now starting the search for his third manager in six months.

Anderson replaced Ritchie Hanlon in September but won only two league games and leaves the club four points adrift of safety in the Conference South table.

Despite losing his job just two days into the New Year Anderson, in a terse conversation with the St Albans Review, appears to be using laughter as the best medicine.

"I laughed my head off, I think it's hilarious," said the Northern Irishman. "I am very serious about my football but you have to laugh. I had a phonecall off John Gibson last night and he told me he was not happy and terminated my employment."

"When I stop laughing I will make a proper statement," added Anderson when quizzed further. "I have done nothing but laugh with people about it all day - it borders on the ridiculous. I feel for the players who were 100 per cent behind me, and also for the supporters who I didn't get much time to establish a relationship with.

"However, this has not put me off management."
