Fenlon shrugs off anti-Irish abuse furore

PAT FENLON has moved to play down the anti-Irish abuse which he received during last week's Scottish Cup win at Cowdenbeath.

The Dubliner (pictured above) was taunted by a section of the support during Hibernian's 3-2 win at Cowdenbeath on Saturday and Fenlon spoke to police after the game, but the matter is unlikely to go any further.

"That's between me and the policemen, we'll leave it at that," he said.

"I'm used to abuse. If you've played for Linfield and you manage in Ireland you get plenty of abuse. I don't mind that. It's good banter, as long as it doesn't get over the top."

Rovers re-sign McCormack

SHAMROCK ROVERS have boosted their squad for the new season with the re-signing of key midfielder Conor McCormack, but the Hoops are likely to lose striker Karl Sheppard to English side Reading in the next 24 hours.

Former Manchester United trainee McCormack has impressed since joining Rovers from Italian side Triestina last year and now the Co Louth man has agreed a new two-year deal.

Reading are close to signing U21 cap Sheppard and Brian McDermott's club hope to agree a deal this week for the former Everton player.
