The club announced that long-time Redknapp assistant Kevin Bond also left the club, with Lee Carsley taking over as caretaker until a replacement is found.

Redknapp took charge at St Andrew's with three games remaining last term and the 70-year-old was able to preserve their Championship status with victories in the final two matches.

But despite investing heavily in new players over the last few months, Birmingham have made a decision to axe the 70-year-old after six successive defeats, which sees them sitting second from bottom of the Championship.

Redknapp - who embarked on a rebuilding programme at City over the summer, which included the club-record signing of Jota - took over after Gianfranco Zola's disastrous reign last season.

Redknapp's side had not won since August 12 and the 3-1 defeat at home to Preston was their fifth in a row in the league, with another in the cup.

"The club has tonight parted company with manager Harry Redknapp", Birmingham said in a statement on their website.

We thank him for all his efforts and wish him good luck for the future.

"I do not come to work because I need the money, I enjoy the job and leaving home at 5.15 every morning".

However, despite an influx of players in the close season, Birmingham suffered a sixth successive defeat and have just four points from eight league matches.

"I am disappointed. It's been hard, I have had one week with a new team and new players, one week", he told the Birmingham Mail. "I would love to be the manager to bring some success to Birmingham".
