LONDON (REUTERS) - Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace sacked manager Neil Warnock on Saturday, the BBC reported.

A 3-1 home defeat by Southampton on Friday left Palace in the relegation zone, third from bottom on 15 points.

The 66-year-old is the first manager in England's top tier to lose his job this season.
