Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers have parted company with manager Neil Lennon by mutual consent.
The 44-year-old former Celtic manager was appointed in October 2014 and leaves with the club 11 points from safety at the foot of the table with nine games left to play.
Lennon’s departure comes five days after the Sports Shield consortium completed their takeover of Wanderers.
Academy boss Jimmy Phillips will take over the first team as interim manager.
“All at Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Neil for his contributions during his time at the club,” a statement on the club’s website read.
