Warriors' treatment of Elliott diabolical: Glenn

5:33 pm on 9 April 2014

The owners of the Warriors rugby league club appear to be at odds over the sacking of coach Matt Elliott.

One of the club's co-owners, Sir Owen Glenn, has issued a statement describing Elliott's sacking as diabolical.

Sir Owen says Elliott was pushed and didn't resign.

He says the decision hasn't been ratified by the full Warriors board - or "by this co-owner".

Sir Owen says there appears to be an effort to evade accountability with the decision dressed up as voluntary resignation.

He says Elliott isn't a quitter and to suggest he'd walk of his own volition is disreputable.

Sir Own bought a 50 percent stake in the Warriors franchise in 2012. He is said to be exploring his options.

The Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah has refused to comment.
