Struggling Aston Villa have sacked manager, Paul Lambert, after a string of poor results.
Villa have only won one of their last six matches in all competitions, with their last win in the league coming against Leicester City on 07 December 2014.
And the club have now confirmed, via their website, that they have parted ways with Lambert.
A statement read: "Aston Villa Football Club has parted company this evening with manager Paul Lambert.
"First-team coach Scott Marshall and goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall will continue to prepare the squad for Sunday's FA Cup tie with Leicester City at Villa Park.
"The club would also like to place on record its thanks to Paul and take this opportunity to wish him every success in the future."
Lambert's last game in charge was a 2-0 loss to Hull City on Tuesday evening.
