Madrid: Celta Vigo have sacked Oscar Garcia as coach, the club confirmed on Monday after a poor start to the season.

Celta drew 1-1 away at newly-promoted Elche on Friday to make it seven matches in a row without a victory.

They have won only once in La Liga since the start of the season and sit 17th, a point above the bottom three.

Garcia was appointed in November last year but failed to pull the team away from a relegation scrap, even if survival was secured on the final day.

"Oscar Garcia and his coaching staff will no longer be in charge of Celta," the club said in a statement.
