McCall began 2019 with five wins in seven matches but the Iron have won only once since.

Scunthorpe have sacked manager Stuart McCall after Saturday's defeat by Rochdale left the club in relegation trouble.

The 3-1 loss at Spotland saw the Iron slip to within two points of the drop zone. It was a sixth defeat in their last nine Sky Bet League One matches.

First-team coach Andy Dawson will be in caretaker charge for Scunthorpe's remaining seven games of the campaign.

A brief statement on the club's official website read: "Scunthorpe have parted company with first-team manager Stuart McCall. Andy Dawson will be caretaker manager for the rest of the season."

McCall became manager at Glanford Park in August after Nick Daws was sacked just four matches into the season.

A run of five victories in six had Scunthorpe in mid-table at the end of January, but just two wins since means they have dropped to 18th in the table.
