Former United man rules himself out

Former United man rules himself out

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has ruled himself out of the race to become the next boss of Dundee United.

The Tangerines are seeking a replacement following the decision of current manager Peter Houston to quit the club at the end of the season.

Former United forward O'Neill was one of a number of names in the frame and alongside fellow international boss Mixu Paatelainen, who is presently in charge of Finland.

But O'Neill's current position with Northern Ireland runs until the end of this year and he has since reaffirmed his commitment to that role.

Others in contention for the Tannadice vacancy include Falkirk's Steven Pressley, Derek Adams of Ross County, Peterhead's Jim McInally, Jackie McNamara of Partick Thistle, Alloa Athletic's Paul Hartley and free-agent ex-United defender Derek McInnes, previously in charge at Livingston.
