Bristol Rovers have parted company with manager Mark McGhee in the aftermath of their 4-1 defeat at York.

The 55-year-old had been in charge at the Memorial Ground for 11 months and won just 12 times.

An official statement said the final decision came after the defeat at Bootham Crescent, a match which saw Rovers concede four first-half goals to keep them in the npower League Two relegation zone, just two points clear of rock-bottom Barnet.
