McGuinness will stay -- McGee

THE All-Ireland winning Donegal panel expect to be managed by Jim McGuinness in 2013 despite reports linking their manager with a high-profile switch to either Celtic or Liverpool.

A sports psychologist by profession, McGuinness has denied that he has been approached but admitted he would have to consider any offer. The squad will meet in the coming weeks to outline their plans for the 2013 campaign and All Star full-back Neil McGee wants McGuinness to return in the New Year.

"I'd imagine he will be in charge," McGee said. "It's all rumours and we have heard nothing. He hasn't said anything to us. For Jim to be connected is a big honour for him. But it doesn't affect any of us. It hasn't been said in the circle and we only take what's said in there."

McGee was in Dublin to help launch the new 'Medal of Honor' game along with his brother Eamon.

"We're in relatively good shape now so there's no point in letting it drop and drop," Eamon said. "We want to get into the gym. It's not as if Jim will be begging us -- we are a bit mature now.
