Neil Redfearn has resigned as Liverpool Women boss after one league game in charge of the club.
Former Leeds United, Rotherham United and Doncaster Rovers Belles manager Redfearn replaced Scott Rogers in June.
But the Reds lost both of their first two competitive matches under the 53-year-old, including a 5-0 Women's Super League defeat by Arsenal on Sunday.
Former Liverpool, Sheffield Wednesday and England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, 37, has been named as caretaker boss.
He will be assisted by Vicky Jepson, who was appointed as a first-team coach in August.
