Tony Pulis has left Middlesbrough after 18 months in charge.

Boro fans were quick to react to the news on social media, with many fans happy to see the back of the 61-year-old Welshman.

Supporters have also offered their views on who should replace Pulis at the Riverside, following reports that first-team coach Jonathan Woodgate is set to take charge.

Yet many fans would prefer a manager with more experience, with former Brighton boss Chris Hughton and Slavisa Jokanovic mentioned.

@nigelmaltby66: @Karanka get yourself home Aitor #Boro needs you

@Rovardi: Right, glad he's gone, what another waste of time! Please don't appoint a young manager with no experience in Woodgate and if you have to sell Britt, make sure you get at least £15m for him and don't get your eyes took out, pretty please @Boro #UTB

@thefootballfly: Thank You @Boro Maybe we can all start to enjoy watching our team again.

@jimmylees: I’d like to see us give the Cowley brothers a chance. But maybe it would make more sense to go with somebody without a club. Maybe Jokanovic?

@dailyboro: I'd like AK just because we know he can do it, but anyone other than Woodgate i'll be fully behind

@GastonGrimsdyke: Least surprising news this season. Poor Gibbo, Chris Hughton a good shout?

@TonyBrannon: Get Chris Hughton in Boro

@SwalesCallum: Arteta for me

@stewilson1989: Pulis did a good job reducing costs, but I didn't enjoy his football. Will not be missed

@Matt_Rowney: Really happy with this decision. Thank you Pulis for leaving the club better off the pitch, but on it we were going backwards. Hopefully we can bring in a young exciting and ambitious manager. And bring back some excitement to The Riverside.

@TeessideBoxing: Woodgate really?? Don't do it just don't... I'd be done with football for life
