Kenny quits Derry City to manage Shamrock Rovers

As expected, Derry City's manager Stephen Kenny has confirmed he's leaving the club.

Stephen Kenny will become manager of Shamrock Rovers. He'll replace Michael O'Neill, who is set to named new Northern Ireland manager.

Kenny, in his second spell at Derry, had been contracted to Derry City for another season, and had been offered a contract extension.

It is believed that Rovers will play Derry City compensation for Kenny's services.
