Murray hopeful of new club
DAN MURRAY says he hopes to stay in football and find a new club following his exit from Shamrock Rovers.
Murray captained Rovers to their league title success last season but the former Cork City man will not be at Tallaght next season after being informed by new Hoops boss Stephen Kenny that he's not part of his plans and will not be offered a new deal.
Rovers have already strengthened their defence with the signing of centre halves Graham Gartland and Colin Hawkins and re-signing Craig Sives.
"It's disappointing to leave, but Shamrock Rovers didn't want to sign me and it was as simple as that, that's football," Murray told the Herald.
"I had two good years there and I enjoyed my time at the club, playing in the group stages of the Europa League last year was such an honour but now I have to move on. I am keen to carry on playing, I had a good season last year and I feel I have a few more years left in me," added Murray, who has already been linked with a move to his former club Cork City, as the English-born defender is back living in Cork.
"I haven't had any contact from (Cork City boss) Tommy Dunne or any other managers, but I hope to hear something in the next couple of days."
