MOST COMMENTED

One day after a 3-0 home loss to Southampton left Cardiff only one point above the relegation zone it announced the departure of Coach Malky Mackay, who had public row with billionaire Malaysian owner Vincent Tan earlier this month. In a statement, Tan said: "Far too much dirty linen has been exposed to the public gaze but, I stress, not by me."

Tan also accused Mackay of overspending in the transfer market and had announced the coach would have nothing to spend in the January window. The 41-year-old Scotsman refused to resign after a request from Tan and led the team in games against Liverpool and Southampton before his dismissal following a board meeting on Friday.

Mackay's assistant David Kerslake is expected to be in charge for the home game against Sunderland on Saturday.
