I had to go for the Saints job, insists Kearney

By Graham Luney

Oran Kearney says he has no regrets over his decision to go for the St Mirren job.

The Coleraine boss was interviewed for the role and despite impressing club chiefs, the Scottish Premiership side went for Alan Stubbs as their next manager.

Kearney, who guided the Bannsiders to a first Irish Cup success since 2003, stated: "It wasn't appropriate to comment during, but now it's over I feel I should share my views.

"An approach was made to invite me over to interview for the St Mirren job. After some thought I chose to attend, not because I am unhappy at CPC (Cross and Passion College) or Coleraine FC but because sometimes in life opportunities appear that could have 'life changing' consequences.

"I didn't want to look back in 20 years with regret and a huge 'what if' eating at me in relation to how things might have ended up if I didn't pursue.

"I enjoyed the preparation and the buzz of the interview itself and as my mum always says, 'What's for you will never pass you.'

"I am delighted with the feedback I received from the St Mirren board and thank them for the opportunity, I can now look forward with no baggage in my mind, in life and football.

"Finally, this week proved a humbling experience, that in my family circle, my school community and my football family I am lucky to be surrounded by so many special people."
