Former Scotland manager Alex McLeish has left Egyptian club Zamalek after just 65 days despite six wins and two draws in his 10 games in charge.

McLeish, 57, is the fourth coach to leave the Cairo side this season.

The ex-Rangers boss led the club to the group phase of the African Champions League but they are 11 points behind league leaders Al Ahly.

Mohamed Helmy has taken charge as interim-manager with the board set to name a successor in the coming days.

McLeish replaced ex-Zamalek striker Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam in February after he was in charge of the club for 37 days.
