Birmingham City Part Company With Harry Redknapp Following Sixth Straight Defeat

Birmingham City Part Company With Harry Redknapp Following Sixth Straight Defeat”

The journeyman has seen his side start poorly this season, winning one of their opening eight league games.

Daniel Johnson, Jordan Hugill and Tom Barkhuizen all scored for Preston as Alex Neil's side came back to win 3-1.

The 70-year-old, whose coaching career has included Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth, was briefly hailed as a saviour after he kept Birmingham in the division last term having taken over following a disastrous spell in charge by Italian Gianfranco Zola.

A awful start to the season has seen them register just one win and lose their last six games in all competitions, however, leaving them 23rd in the Championship table with a tally of four points from eight games. "What can you do about it?"

Birmingham signed 14 players during the summer transfer window but a failure to stop the rot saw Redknapp become the first managerial casualty of the Championship season. "I would love to be the manager to bring some success to Birmingham". What can anyone do. "There is a team waiting to gel but we have suffered several injuries to key players", he said. "It was very hard".

Lee Carsley, who arrived at Birmingham under Redknapp in June, will take charge of first-team duties for the time being.
