Aston Villa have sacked manager Tim Sherwood after eight months in charge, with the club 19th in the Premier League table.
The move follows a 2-1 defeat to Swansea on Saturday - Villa's sixth straight loss in the league.
Under-21 manager Kevin McDonald has been placed in interim charge.
Appointed in February, Sherwood reached the FA Cup final with Villa in his first season in charge, but has won one of ten league matches this term.
