Every morning brings you the stories you need to know before that first cup of coffee.

1. #JIMMY Celtic will today issue a statement about the future of All-Ireland-winning manager Jim McGuinness.

The Donegal boss looks set to take up a part-time role as performance coach of Celtic’s youth department, according to reports.

It’s expected McGuinness will combine the two roles for the time being but we’ll have more as it develops.

2. #EUROPA LEAGUE Anzhi Makhachkala moved to the top of Europa League Group A as they leapfrogged Liverpool with a 1-0 win thanks to a lone Lacina Traore goal in freezing temperatures in Moscow on Thursday. Here’s everything else that happened including a Jermain Defoe treble.

3. #NOVEMBER INTERNATIONALS So Jamie Heaslip will lead out Ireland as skipper against the Springboks at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow. Here’s some of the key battles, we reckon.

4. #NFL Andrew Luck threw for 227 yards and ran for two touchdowns late last night as Indianapolis avenged an early season NFL defeat with a 27-10 triumph over division rivals Jacksonville. The Colts are now 5-1 since head coach Chuck Pagano left the team to undergo treatment for leukemia

5. #ROSSIES John Evans was last night ratified as the Roscommon senior football manager. The Kerry native will fill a vacancy that has been created since Des Newton stepped down as boss of the Connacht side in April after just one year in charge.
