Birmingham City currently sit in 13th place on 50 points but with a nine-point deduction coming their way they will tumble down into 18th and just five points above the drop-zone.
The punishment was made earlier today after the Blues were found guilty of breaking Financial Fair Play rules and will now face a relegation scrap in the coming weeks.
They have already lost their last four Championship matches and now face a run against West Brom, Leeds United and Sheffield United.
And Aston Villa man Jack Grealish was ready to take no prisoners, liking the Tweet of Sky Sports Rob Dorsett that revealed the news.

Grealish made the headlines earlier this month when he was attacked by a Birmingham fan during the Second City derby at St Andrew’s, before going on to score the winner in Villa’s 1-0 triumph.
But there was a mixed response to the act shared by Villa Report. Some obviously found it hilarious, but others were quick to remember that Villa themselves could be in a similar situation soon…
Don’t take the pee as we could be hit by it if we don’t go up this season .
