McLeish walks out on Birmingham

Alex McLeish resigned as the manager of Birmingham City yesterday, on a day of managerial movement in English football. McLeish quit Birmingham via an email, according to a club statement. By resigning he has forfeited the pay-off to which he would be entitled and so there is little doubt that he has another job to go to. He has been linked with the managerial vacancy at Aston Villa, but might be unpopular with their supporters. He won the League Cup this season but months later was relegated. In other managerial news, Steve McClaren has replaced the sacked Billy Davies as manager of Championship side Nottingham Forest. McClaren returns to English football having managed in the Netherlands and Germany since his sacking as England coach in 2007. MORE
