Taylor sacked at Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Peter Taylor following their disappointing start to the Championship season.

They are currently well off the pace again, lying in 19th place with 10 points from their opening 10 games.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Crystal Palace Football Club announce that Peter Taylor's contract has been terminated with immediate effect."

Taylor, who starred on the wing for Palace as a player in the 1970s, has also managed Southend, Gillingham, Leicester and Brighton as well as a successful spell in charge of the England Under-21 side.

Former Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock has been linked with the role in recent weeks.
