SACKED! West Brom axe Steve Bruce

 West Brom have sacked manager Steve Bruce after winning just one in 13 Championship games.

The poor form has the Baggies stuck in the relegation zone, hovering above Huddersfield and Coventry.

And Saturday's dull 0-0 home draw against Luton Town was the final straw for the ex-Premier League manager.

An official club statement read: "West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with Manager Steve Bruce.

"Backroom staff Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence and Alex Bruce have also left The Hawthorns.

"The club would like to place on record its thanks to Steve Bruce and his coaching staff for their efforts since arriving in February.

"Under-21s coach Richard Beale will oversee first-team affairs on an interim basis, assisted by James Morrison and Gary Walsh.

"The process of recruiting a new Manager is now under way and an appointment will be confirmed in due course."

Bruce was hired last season after his dismissal at Newcastle United.
