O’Neill brings Magilton on board

Wednesday, 06 July 2011 08:32

Shamrock Rovers boss, Michael O’Neill, has enlisted the services of his former Northern Ireland teammate, Jim Magilton to assist him while he considers candidates for the role of his assistant manager.

O’Neill said: “I thought Jim's other commitments in Northern Ireland and the UK would prevent him helping me at this crucial stage of the season. I was delighted when he said he would assist me until I find the right candidate for the job on a permanent basis.

Magilton – a former Northern Ireland captain – has managed Ipswich Town and QPR in the English Championship.

 

O’Neill will continue to consider candidates for assistant manager at the club.
