Glens left red-faced as Nixon says no to job offer

Oval target signs new Ards deal

By Graham Luney

Glentoran have been left reeling by the latest setback in their pursuit of a new manager after Colin Nixon agreed a new deal with Ards.

The Glens had offered Nixon a second, improved offer to take charge of the east Belfast club but the man who spent nearly 20 years as a player at The Oval turned them down and signed a new three-year deal with the north Down club.

Ards chairman Brian Adams confirmed last night: "Colin has signed his new deal and we are absolutely delighted he has shown loyalty and is staying with us."

While Ards are thrilled, Glentoran are reflecting on missing out on one of their legends, a former club captain who made 794 appearances for them and won every domestic honour in the game.

It's another significant blow to the under pressure Glentoran board who were unable to persuade Rodney McAree to leave Dungannon Swifts while Matthew Tipton took charge at Portadown.

Former Glens and Portadown manager Ronnie McFall has been in temporary charge of the team since Gary Haveron's dismissal in February but the club, which is seventh in the Premiership table, needs a new boss to begin the rebuilding process for next season.
