McGuinness eyes soccer coach role

JIM McGUINNESS hasn't ruled out a return to elite management - in either soccer or Gaelic football.

The ex-Donegal boss, a member of the Celtic backroom set-up since 2012, revealed: "I've really enjoyed coaching and I'd like to challenge myself in that area to see what I can do, what I can offer and how much I would enjoy that dynamic. I'm looking forward to starting my UEFA B (coaching badge) in two weeks' time."

McGuinness, who has joined Sky Sports' GAA punditry team, said he would "never close a book" on a possible Donegal return, although he added: "I have two sons, aged five and four, and there's probably a higher percentage chance of being involved with the Glenties U8s or U10s than there is with Donegal in the short term."
