City's result here at St James' Park and Sunderland's win at Old Trafford mean the Bluebirds have been relegated from the @premierleague.

Cardiff City down. Vincent Tan should never have dismissed Malky Mackay. #bluebirds fans deserve better than this rash, callous owner

Bigger picture for Cardiff City? For as long as the disunity between fans and owner remains, they have nothing.

Solskjaer hoping for 'miracle' in relegation battle

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes it would "definitely be a bigger miracle" than Manchester United's epic 1999 Champions League final triumph if Cardiff City can avoid Premier League relegation.

Solskjaer scored one of two injury-time goals as United beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in Barcelona on one of British football's most famous nights.

The current Cardiff manager now faces the task of trying to keep his team afloat.

Currently bottom of the league, they require victories in their final two games - at Newcastle today and against Cardiff City Stadium visitors Chelsea in nine days' time - to retain any survival hope.

Even then, they still need other results to work in their favour, but Solskjaer has no intention of throwing in the towel.

"If we stay up it would definitely be a bigger miracle than Barcelona in 1999," he said.

"That night it was possible, and in football anything is possible. So we need to give ourselves a chance in front of our fans against Chelsea.

"It takes belief, togetherness, a team that goes the extra mile, and a hero stepping forward and doing something magical.

"It's still possible, it's still possible that we are out of the bottom three if we win this weekend. We have got to give ourselves something to play for in the last game by winning this game."
