Striker Scott McGleish wants the Bristol Rovers board to make a quick appointment of a new manager at the League Two club.
The veteran forward, who scored the Pirates' only goal in their 3-1 FA Cup third-round defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, is keen to start work under former boss Paul Buckle's successor - whoever that may be.
Richard Money is the current bookmakers' favourite to assume to post and McGleish feels the sooner the new man arrives at the Memorial Stadium, the faster the club can start rebuilding what has been a nightmare season to date.
He told the Bristol Evening Post: "As players, we are desperate to know who the manager is as soon as possible.
"There have been lots of names bandied about but we don't know any more than the fans do.
"The quicker the club can identify who they want - and someone who wants it - the better it is for everyone."
