CORK LEGEND DIARMUID O’Sullivan has issued a statement to rule himself out of the running for his county’s senior hurling manager’s job.

The Rock had been linked to the vacancy since Kieran Kingston stepped down last week after leading Cork to a Munster title and All-Ireland semi-final.

O’Sullivan was a selector in the previous regime and was considered by many to be among the favourites for the role.

However, in a statement on Twitter this morning, he ended all speculation:

John Myler, another selector from 2017, Mark Landers and Pat Ryan are the top three in the betting to take over the Rebels.
