Daily Mercury - - DIGEST SPORT -

FOOT­BALL: Vet­eran man­ager Harry Red­knapp has been axed as man­ager of sec­ond-tier English club Birm­ing­ham City. Red­knapp, who has man­aged Tot­ten­ham, Portsmouth and Southamp­ton and others in a lengthy ca­reer, was told of the club’s de­ci­sion af­ter a 3-1 home de­feat by Pre­ston. The 70-year-old was hailed a saviour af­ter keep­ing the team in the Cham­pi­onship last sea­son. But de­spite a num­ber of sign­ings in the trans­fer win­dow, the Blues have lost six games in a row and have just four points from eight league matches.
