Manager Simon Grayson has left Sunderland after a 3-3 Sky Bet Championship draw with Bolton, the club have announced.
The Black Cats released a statement via their official website within minutes of the final whistle to confirm Grayson's departure after Paddy McNair's late equaliser had spared them the ignominy of slipping to the foot of the table.
The statement said: "Sunderland AFC has this evening parted company with manager Simon Grayson. The club would like to place on record its thanks to Simon and his staff for their efforts during their time at the football club."
