Redknapp Sacked by Birmingham City After Sixth Consecutive Loss

The Harry Redknapp era at Birmingham City has come to an end.

Redknapp came in to save the Blues from relegation and achieved that goal with two wins in three matches, before signing a one-year deal to stay at the club.

Redknapp, who had been in charge for just 13 matches, had appeared not to be aware of an impending decision although he accepted the blame for the abject display in Saturday's match.

"Unfortunately due to the poor start to the campaign which sees the Club second from bottom of the Championship, we are left with no choice but to terminate the contract of the manager with immediate effect." read a club statement.

We thank him for all his efforts and wish him good luck for the future.

Redknapp's side had not won since August 12 and the 3-1 defeat at home to Preston was their fifth in a row in the league, with another in the cup.

There will be no further comment at this time.

But this season they have picked up only four points in their opening eight matches and sit 23rd in the Championship table.

Lee Carsley has been appointed as caretaker manager, stepping up from his role with the development squad.

"Fans deserve better and that was my motivation to carry on this season. I would love to be the manager to bring some success to Birmingham".

Because of a last day win over Bristol City he kept the Blues in the Championship.

Former Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp claims that he would have led the club back to the Premier League had he been given more time.
