Brighton keeper Ryan 'shocked' by Hughton sacking

Mat Ryan has expressed his shock at seeing Brighton manager Chris Hughton sacked on Monday.

Hughton had his four-and-a-half-year rein at the AMEX ended after the Seagulls narrowly avoided relegation, finishing just two points clear of the drop.

"Shocked to hear of the news of the gaffer this morning," Ryan posted on Instagram.

"Brought the club success it could only dream of and will always be someone I have the highest respect for through how he conducts himself as a manager and a man.

"Wish him all the best for the next chapter and thank him for the belief he showed in me."
