It has been confirmed that Blackburn Rovers have sacked manager Paul Ince.
Paul Ince replaced Mark Hughes at Ewood Park in the summer, joining' from League One side MK Dons, after Hughes moved on to head up Manchester City.
Rovers have now decided to take action as the club currently sit in 19th place on the Premier League table, five points short of safety.
Chairman John Williams said;
Three wins in 17 games has seen a squad, which finished seventh last season, fall to 19th position. We are currently in real danger of becoming detached from the pack.
The survival of the club in the Premier League is paramount and our focus now is on finding a replacement who will be able to maintain our top division status.
Paul will bounce back, he is a fighter and we wish him well.
Former Blackburn boss Graeme Souness has been named as favourite to fill the void left by Ince, with Sam Allardyce, George Graham and Alan Curbishley also tipped.
