Martin, 33, was voted for as Player of the Month for September, but played just once during October as Dons' woes intensified.

The former Scottish international made his name at Norwich, where he made more than 300 appearances for the Canaries. He joined MK Dons from Walsall in January, and was described by former boss Tisdale as his signing of the season following a string of excellent displays in the second half of last season's promotion campaign.

Martin's first game in charge will be the FA Cup first round game with League Two Port Vale at Stadium MK next Saturday.
