Ipswich Town will be led by Bryan Klug for the final four games of the 2017/18 season following the departure of Mick McCarthy.

McCarthy quit as Ipswich manager following last night’s 1-0 victory over Barnsley at Portman Road, having previously been due to depart at the end of the campaign.

He leaves a side 12th in the Championship, with Klug taking over for the four remaining games, starting against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Klug is currently the club’s head of academy coaching and has held various roles at Portman Road during a long association, including as assistant to Jim Magilton between 2006 and 2008.

After a spell at Tottenham’s academy, he returned to Blues in the summer of 2012 and will now take command of the first-team for Saturday’s visit to Nottingham Forest.

Following the game at the City Ground, Town host Aston Villa, travel to Reading and then finish their season at home to Middlesbrough.
