"I thank Martin, Roy, and the management for the impact they had," said Football Association of Ireland (FAI) chief John Delaney.

O'Neill had only just extended his contract to 2020, but after further reconsideration the FAI deemed fit to let him go.

The ex-Ireland manager's woes began when his side was thumped 5-1 at home to Denmark in their World Cup qualifier, ending any hopes of making it to Russia.

Internal wrangles between management and team also contributed to the decision after midfielder Harry Arter pulled out of the team following a fiery row with Keane.

Relegation to the third tire of the Nations League, was the icing on O'Neill's dismissal cake after they managed only one goal in four games.
