Ipswich Manager, Mick McCarthy, announces departure.

Mick McCarthy brought his six-year tenure at Ipswich Town to a dramatic end, announcing "I'm out of here" after a 1-0 win over Barnsley on Tuesday.

The 59-year-old was due to leave the Championship club at the end of the season, but departed four games early.

It came after he was asked in his post-match news conference about fans' negative reaction to debutant Barry Cotter being substituted.

"I won't have to listen to that again, that's my last game," McCarthy said.

"I'm out of here."

The club's head of coaching and player development Bryan Klug will take charge of the first team for the remaining games of the season.
