SUNDERLAND have confirmed that chief scout Pop Robson has parted ties with the club.

The Echo reported earlier this week how Robson had been axed from his position, along with several other Sunderland scouts, as part of an overhaul of the network.

Former Sunderland striker Robson, who re-joined the Black Cats under Steve Bruce in 2011, has stepped down with immediate effect.

Chief executive Margaret Byrne said: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Pop for his contribution to the club and we wish him well for the future.”
