Swindon confirmed Cooper's departure after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Millwall - their eighth successive game without victory.

The Robins are 20th in the table, above the relegation zone only on goal difference and without a win since 5 September.

Cooper had been in charge since August 2013, guiding the club to the play-offs last season where they lost 4-0 to Preston in the final.
