Steve Agnew determined to show his managerial credentials at Middlesbrough

Former Middlesbrough midfielder Peter Beagrie says Aitor Karanka's departure from the Riverside is not a shock Middlesbrough considering Hiddink appointment

Aitor Karanka left Middlesbrough on Thursday after more than three years in charge with the club fighting relegation from the Premier League.

Middlesbrough legend Bernie Slaven has told talkSPORT how he was "bored" watching the Premier League strugglers week after week and that it was time for change with the club "plummeting like a stone".

Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson has denied Karanka was sacked, instead saying the 43-year-old Spaniard "sacrificed himself" for the club in a mutual decision to step down. "I see myself as being a creative coach, slowly but surely I know I'm capable of drip-feeding ideas into the group that will pay dividends", he said. But today the players have trained well and we look forward to the weekend.

"Because, in the first year, when he arrived, the team was going to League One and he saved the team".

"In the second year, he took the team to the play-off final at Wembley".

Morelle said a big ash cloud was visible above Etna and the plume from the explosion was visible a long way off. Both eruptions were classed as "Strombolian" activity by volcanologists.

"So I think in the fourth year, he deserved to be sacked".

Harry Redknapp is interested in returning to management with Middlesbrough should Steve Agnew's spell in charge prove unsuccessful.

Slaven feels Agnew, who has been caretaker boss in previous years, will not get the role until the end of the season and he is backing Martin O'Neill for the job.

"Steve could be a surprise number one. There's more to him than people know and a bit more steel", he said.

Agnew wasted no time in reshaping Middlesbrough's coaching staff in the wake of his temporary promotion, with the hugely experienced Joe Jordan's appointment as assistant head coach confirmed earlier on Friday.
