LEE JOHNSON stormed out of a live TV interview after being asked about his future as Hibernian manager.
The coach has since been sacked by the Scottish Premiership outfit after the 3-2 loss to Livingston left them rock bottom of the league.
Hibs have failed to pick up any points from their first three games and they also suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the Conference League play-off.
But after the disappointment against Livingston, Johnson, 42, appeared to be in no mood for chatting.
During his post-match interview with Sky, he insisted that he still believes in the "abilities of the staff and in the players".
However, he then decided that was that as he started to walk away from the interviewer.

To which Johnson replied: "Oh thank you."
He then continued to walk away before saying the fans were "brilliant" and that he "loves" them.
The moment has gone viral on social media, with fans comparing it to a feature in the Football Manager computer game.
