Gillingham: Andy Hessenthaler saddened by Peter Taylor exit

Andy Hessenthaler tells BBC Radio Kent he has had "a sad and tough time" following Peter Taylor's sacking as Gillingham manager on New Year's Eve.

The 49-year-old played under Taylor at Priestfield during his first spell in charge in 1999-00 and was appointed as assistant manager by Taylor last summer.

Hessenthaler, who has himself had two separate spells as Gills boss, is currently part of a four-man caretaker management team at the League One club.
