McStay in talks over Derry City job

WILLIE McStay has been linked to the vacant manager’s role at Derry City.

BBC Radio is reporting that McStay is expected to speak to club officials today.

McStay is currently assistant manager of Stockport County.

He had been in charge of Ross County before being sacked after three months.

His record in Irish football is impressive, having led Sligo Rovers to a treble success in 1994.

He also had stints as reserve and youth coach at Celtic.

Current Sligo boss Paul Cook has already turned down the job at The Brandywell.

Former Northern Ireland international Jim Magilton has also been linked with the post.
