Villa sack McLeish

Published Add your comment

Alex McLeish has been sacked by Aston Villa, less than 24 hours after the end of his first season in charge, the club have announced on their website.

The Scot was an unpopular appointment among many Villa fans after he took neighbours Birmingham down last season and although he avoided a second successive relegation this term, it was not enough to save his job.

A win-less run stretching to nine matches saw Villa finish just two points clear of the drop, and McLeish's fate was confirmed following talks with senior club officials.
