Sky Bet Championship strugglers Wigan have parted company with Malky Mackay after the club slipped eight points adrift of safety.

The Latics were beaten 2-0 by Derby on Monday afternoon, leaving them facing the prospect of dropping down into League One barely two years after they were in the top flight and won the FA Cup.

And in a short statement on their official website, the club confirmed they had removed Mackay from his post just five months after his controversial hiring.
