Championship side Stoke City have sacked manager Gary Rowett after just eight months in charge at The Britannia Stadium.
The Potters have gone four games without a win and sit 14th place in the table after winning just eight of 26 Championship games this season.
Rowett, 44, was appointed last May after Stoke agreed a compensation package with his former club, Derby.
“Stoke City have terminated the contract of manager Gary Rowett,” a club statement released on Tuesday said. “Members of his immediate coaching staff have also left the bet365 Stadium.
“The Club would like to thank Gary and his staff for their efforts over the past eight months. A new managerial appointment will be made as swiftly as possible but in the meantime Rory Delap, Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take charge of first-team affairs.”
