Oran Kearney refuses to comment on St Mirren job after Stubbs' departure

Coleraine manager Oran Kearney didn't want to discuss the job vacancy at St Mirren after his own side won 3-0 against Crusaders on Monday evening.

Kearney was in for the Paisley club's top job this summer, impressing during an interview before the decision-makers opted to go for former Celtic midfielder Alan Stubbs instead.

His stint in charge lasted less than three months, with news of Stubbs' departure breaking while the Bannsiders were crushing their title rivals at Seaview.

Kearney, following the match, refused to be drawn on the vacant hotseat. He will once again be on St Mirren’s radar, however former Ross County boss Jim McIntyre has been suggested as the first choice replacement for Stubbs.

Kearney’s verdict: “I think it would be absolutely crazy for me to even entertain anything along those lines and take away from what was a brilliant performance from Coleraine Football Club.

“At this moment in time I wouldn’t be willing to comment on it.”
