Aberdeen Football Club has confirmed they have parted ways with manager Jim Goodwin after they lost 6-0 to Hibernian at Easter Road.

The club took to their social media accounts - 19 minutes after full-time - to say they had let Goodwin go along with first team assistant manager Lee Sharp with immediate effect. 

It's understood the 41-year-old Irishman walked straight out the stadium following the devastating defeat - meaning the Dons have now won once in their last 10 since the winter break. 

His sacking comes after Aberdeen have now conceded 11 goals in the capital in the last two weeks as well as the 1-0 Scottish Cup loss to non-league side Darvel on Monday. 

The club's football monitoring board commented earlier in the week stating the senior players backed Goodwin and he would be in charge for the match against Hibs but they were seeking an immediate response. 

Aberdeen have now dropped to seventh in the Scottish Premiership table.
