Bolton's Speed relieved of coaching duties

Bolton Wanderers midfielder Gary Speed has been relieved of his coaching role by manager Sammy Lee.

Speed, 38, was appointed first-team coach by Lee in May when he took over from Sam Allardyce as boss.

But Bolton - who lie 19th in the Premier League - have had a poor start to the season and Lee said: "I want him to focus on his game at this moment.

"I don't want anything to distract him. I want everybody - coaches and players - to be fully focused on their game."
