McNally, who has been in position since 2009, replied to a fan who called on him to leave the club following Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.

The user blamed a lack of investment for the Canaries' current predicament - four points from safety with two to play and apparently heading back to the Sky Bet Championship - and led to a surprisingly honest response.

McNally tweeted: "that's ok and I understand your view. I've resigned tonight and I hope that the club can now progress".

A strong ally of co-owner Delia Smith, McNally arrived at Carrow Road from Fulham having previously spent four years as sales and marketing director at Celtic.
