Steve Bruce has been sacked as Aston Villa manger, just the day after a cabbage was thrown at him by one of the home fans at Villa Park.

Following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Preston on Tuesday in which the side squandered a two-goal lead, had a man sent off and missed a penalty, the club acted on the next afternoon.

Bruce had been under increasing pressure after just one win in nine league games.
