Real Sociedad 2 Granada 1: Tony Adams’ side relegated from La Liga after losing fourth straight game under ex-Arsenal legend

Ex-England star came in earlier this month to try and save troubled Spanish side, but lost every game scoring just one goal

GRANADA have been relegated from La Liga after losing their fourth straight game under former Arsenal legend Tony Adams.

Another ex-Arsenal man Carlos Vela opened the scoring for Sociedad with a superb finish on the stroke of half-time.

Granada equalised in the 65th minute through striker Adrian Ramos – in doing so scoring the first goal of the Adams era.

But it was to be an unhappy ending as Juanmi gave Sociedad the lead again in the 84th minute to plunge a dagger into the heart of Adams.

He was brought in to try and save the beleagured club earlier this month, but instead has conceded nine, averaged five yellows a match and scored just one.

Granada now bring their six year tenure in La Liga to an end, while Sociedad move into the top six.

Adams' future is unclear, as he only signed a deal until the end of this season.
