Shamrock Rovers have sacked manager Stephen Kenny after a run of poor results and are now on the hunt for a new manager.
Kenny lasted less than nine months at the Tallaght club after taking over from Michael O’Neill’s last December.
It had been rumoured that Kenny had lost the faith of the dressing room after a few games and it was always unlikely that he would be the manager at the end of season.
Shamrock Rovers chairman Jonathan Roche said: “We have not taken this decision lightly and we are extremely disappointed with the turn of events.
“However, the club feels that this is the right decision at this time, and attention now turns to Friday night’s FAI Ford Cup game against Shelbourne and identifying the next manager of Shamrock Rovers.
“We would like to wish take this opportunity to wish Stephen the best for the future.”
