The club’s chief executive Tom Fox said, “I’d like to thank Scott for his efforts during his time at the football club and especially under difficult circumstances at the weekend when he took the team for Sunday’s FA Cup victory over Leicester City.

The pair oversaw a 2-1 victory for the Villans, securing their passage into the quarter finals of the tournament.

“We wish him all the best in the future,” Fox added.

In the wake of Paul Lambert’s sacking last week, Marshall and goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall were placed in charge while the club searched for his successor, who was unveiled on Saturday as former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood.

The reasons behind Marshall’s departure are unclear but, as reported in the Mail on Sunday, the former coach had been complimentary of the new manager’s impact on the team crediting him as the reason behind Villa’s 2-1 FA Cup victory over Leicester.

“He came in and made a couple of points to the lads, a couple of bits and pieces for everyone. I thought the boys delivered that in the second half and were very good.

“There was good information to the group, there’s a football knowledge there which comes with a lifetime in the game,” Marshall said.
