Martin Ling has resigned as manager of Sky Bet League One side Swindon Town after just under two months under the role due to health reasons, the club has confirmed.
Ling played over 150 times for the club over two separate spells and made a return to management in November after taking a break from the game due to depression.
It is not yet clear at this stage whether that is the reason for his abrupt departure but the club are expected a release a statement shortly to clarify the situation.
The 49-year-old had some success in his short spell with the club, winning five of his nine games in charge, and led them to 16th in League One, a considerable improvement given that they were in the relegation zone before his arrival.
The Robins will now begin the search for their third manager of the season as they look to continue the progress they made under Ling.
