Birmingham City have announced that they have parted company with manager Harry Redknapp.
The Blues suffered their fifth straight Championship loss when they slumped to defeat against Preston North End on Saturday.
Redknapp, 70, has managed just one league win in seven games so far this season and Birmingham are now in the second tier's bottom three.
The Blues signed 14 players during the summer transfer window, but despite this, six defeats from the St Andrew's club's first eight league games of 2017-18 saw Redknapp become the first managerial casualty of the Championship season.
Redknapp initially worked without asking for payment from Blues for the final three games of 2016-17, having replaced Gianfranco Zola.
Former Blues midfielder Lee Carsley has been placed in caretaker charge.
