Milton Keynes Dons have parted company with manager Robbie Neilson, with assistant manager Stevie Crawford and first-team coach Neil MacFarlane also leaving the club.

The decision, which was made during a meeting between the club chairman Peter Winkelman and Neilson on Saturday evening, comes after MK Dons lost 2-1 away at Northampton.

MK Dons are 21st in League One having won just once in their last 11 league matches.

Neilson took charge in December 2016, replacing Karl Robinson, after spending two years as Hearts manager.
