Aston Villa have sacked manager Paul Lambert after the club dropped into the Premier League relegation zone, BBC reports.
Villa lost 2-0 to fellow strugglers Hull City on Tuesday, their 10th league game without a win. Their haul of 12 league goals this season is the lowest total after 25 games in Premier League history. The 45-year-old Scot, who was appointed in 2012, signed a contract extension through until June 2018 on 17 September. First-team coach Scott Marshall and goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall have taken caretaker charge.
