SCUNTHORPE United have sacked boss Stuart McCall.

The former Bantams manager has left his post after just seven months at Glanford Park, with Andy Dawson being installed as caretaker for the rest of the season.

McCall was awarded League One manager of the month in January but Scunthorpe have since fallen back into trouble.

Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Rochdale left them just two points clear of the relegation zone in 18th place.

It was a sixth defeat in their last nine Sky Bet League One matches.
