Bristol Rovers have sacked manager Mark McGhee after his side suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat at fellow strugglers York City.
The Pirates are second from bottom of the Football League. Today's game was their third straight defeat. They've only won once in eleven games - against Chesterfield on November 10th - and just four games all season.
McGhee had been in the job less than a year. He replaced Paul Buckle, who was also dismissed after less than a season in the hot seat.
The 55-year-old Scot had previously managed Reading, Leicester City, Wolves, Millwall, Brighton, Motherwell and Aberdeen.
Rovers chairman Nick Higgs told the club's official website:
The club will not make any further comment until a press conference on Monday morning.
