Mick McCarthy has been sacked as manager of relegation threatened Premier League side Wolves.
The former Irish boss was relieved of his duties by the Wolves board on Monday morning.
Their decision came less than 24 hours after Mick’s team was humiliated in a 5-1 defeat at home to local rivals West Brom.
McCarthy had vowed to fight on after that derby day setback but the Board decided enough was enough on Monday morning.
Owner Steve Morgan took action with the side in the relegation places and just 13 league games left this season.
Wolves released a statement which read: “Wolves have today announced that manager, Mick McCarthy, has left the club with immediate effect.
“The Board took the difficult decision to terminate Mick’s contract after a run of form which has seen Wolves pick up only 14 points in the last 22 League games, after a promising start to the season, culminating in yesterday’s 5-1 defeat at home to West Bromwich Albion.
“Terry Connor will take charge of team training in the interim until a new manager is appointed.
“The Board would like to place on record their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mick McCarthy and he leaves with the very best wishes of everyone connected to the club.”
