Adams' tenure ended by Sheffield United

Sheffield United have parted company with their manager, Micky Adams.

Adams had wanted to remain at Bramall Lane to try to revive the club's fortunes after a miserable campaign, in which they were relegated from the Championship.

However, the 49-year-old met with owner Kevin McCabe yesterday and was informed his services were no longer required.
