Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has been sacked by the club after holding talks with senior club officials on Monday.
Aston Villa lost 2-0 in their last Premier League match against Norwich to finish 16th in the league table with just 38 points.
A statement on the clubs official website confirming this read:
"Aston Villa can confirm that Alex McLeish's contract has been terminated with immediate effect. The club has been disappointed with this season's results, performances and the general message these have sent to our fans.
"The board wishes to assure supporters that we are conscious in every sense that Villa expects and deserves more and we will strive to deliver this."
Alex McLeish only spent eleven months with the club and Aston Villa will be going for a fourth manager in less than two years.
