"It's is with great regret I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect," Scholes said in a statement. "I hoped to at the very least, see out my initial term of 18 months as the manager.
"The fans, players, my friends and family all knew how proud + excited I was to take this role. In short period since I took on role it unfortunately became clear I would not be able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role.
"I wish the fans, the players and the staff - who have been tremendous - all the best for the rest of the season and will continue to watch and support the club as a fan."
Scholes only recorded one victory from seven matches in charge as Oldham lie in 14th place in League Two.
Oldham have confirmed Scholes resigned from his position.
"Oldham Athletic Football Club can confirm that Paul Scholes has resigned from his position as First Team Manager with immediate effect," Oldham's club statement read.
"We would like to place on record our thanks to Paul for his efforts during his spell in charge of the club and would like to wish him well for the future.
"An update on the permanent replacement will be made as soon as possible."
Will Scholes return to management?
