WILLIE MCSTAY IS the latest name to be linked with the Derry City manager’s job after it was reported that the Scot will meet with club officials.

The Stockport County assistant boss, who was player/manager of Sligo Rovers between 1992-1994, is to hold talks with The Candystripes about the position left vacant by Stephen Kenny, according to the Derry Journal.

With Paul Cook deciding to turn down advances and remain at Sligo Rovers, McStay, who also coached youth teams at Celtic, follows Jim Magilton in being touted for the role.

Derry approached recently-vacated Shamrock Rovers assistant boss Magilton, but the 42-year-old is also in the running to take over at League One side Preston North End.
