I am delighted. He is one of the best keepers in the league in my opinion and I am pleased he has signed for the next three years.

In a statement on the club website chairman Darragh MacAnthony said he was "very disappointed" with recent results.

I’m personally very disappointed in our current league position, the performances from our playing squad and the fact that we have dropped way below our own standards that we set out at as a football club. There is plenty of young and experienced talent in this squad and with 14 games left in the season, I have personal expectations that our players will all lift their performance levels to match the incredible passionate performance and display by nearly 2000 Posh fans today when we were 3-0 down at Stadium MK.

– Darragh MacAnthony, Chairman

Dave Robertson will be in charge until a new manager is appointed.
