Show Grid

Veteran manager Harry Redknapp was sacked by second-tier Birmingham City on Saturday after a 3-1 home defeat by Preston, the club announced.

The 70-year-old lasted just 13 matches since his appointment at the end of last season - he won only four of those games.

Two victories towards the tail end of the season saw Birmingham finish two points above the relegation zone and Redknapp was soon offered a one-year deal to stay on at St Andrews.

Redknapp spent around £20million on new recruits in the summer and broke the club's transfer record to buy Jota from Brentford for £6.5m.

But despite investing heavily in new players over the last few months, Birmingham have chose to axe the 70-year-old after six successive defeats, which sees them sitting second from bottom of the Championship.

Lee Carsley, Blues' head professional development coach, will step in as caretaker manager.

Following a miserable opening to this campaign, they lie second from bottom of the table after losing six of their opening eight games.
