Championship strugglers Rotherham have sacked manager Neil Redfearn after just four months in charge, the club have confirmed.

The Yorkshire side currently find themselves in 21st place, only out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

It is with a heavy heart that we've parted company with Neil today. As we all know football is a results driven business and with 16 games to go our aim has to be to retain our Championship status.

Everyone at the Club wishes Neil well with his future career and thank him for his efforts and endeavour.

Our focus now is 100% behind appointing a first team manager as soon as possible.

Arsenal need to kick on after poor January - Koscielny

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny says the team need to build on their win over Bournemouth after a poor January.

The Gunners old picked up just three points from their previous four league games prior to their trip to Dean Court, something Frenchman Koscielny admits wasn't good enough.

It was important to win because we needed to stay high up the table with Leicester, Tottenham and Manchester City.

We didn't play well during January and we didn't win a lot of points.

We needed to start a good run with this game and we stayed strong at the back, and scored two goals with our first two opportunities.

We had three games without scoring so it was important for our players.

Neville under pressure after latest Valencia loss

Gary Neville's position as Valencia manager looks increasingly insecure after his struggling side slumped to yet another defeat.

Sunday's 1-0 loss at Real Betis left Valencia just four points clear of the relegation zone, extending the England coach's wait for his first Primera Division win.

Neville has been in charge at the Mestalla for more than two months and vowed to fight on, but admitted he is running out of time to turn things around.

I said before I came that I would be judged in five months. The obituaries have already been written - I have been judged in six weeks.

Our last two league matches were not performances that deserved two defeats, but the reality is that they are two defeats and I am aware of the consequences when you don't get good results.

What matters are results. We knew this would be about one or two moments and they have not gone our way. The line between defeat and victory is so fine.

– Gary Neville
