Stoke City has terminated their contract with Gary Rowett after just eight months in charge, the club announced.
The club relegated from the Premier League last season and are currently eight points adrift of a play-off spot as they struggle to bounce straight back.
“Stoke City have terminated the contract of manager Gary Rowett,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“Members of his immediate coaching staff have also left the bet365 Stadium. The club would like to thank Gary and his staff for their efforts over the past eight months.
“A new managerial appointment will be made as swiftly as possible but in the meantime Rory Delap, Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take charge of first-team affairs.”
