Gary Gold left his role with Bath because of a disagreement, according to the club.

Gold was removed as director of rugby on Monday even though Bath sit second in the Aviva Premiership.

The South African had already been moved upstairs after being marginalised following the summer arrival of head coach Mike Ford.

"After the last few months it became clear that the club and Gary were not able to agree on how to define the role of director of rugby," read a statement released by Bath.
