Roscommon GAA have confirmed that manager Kevin McStay will remain as manager of the Roscommon senior team despite rumours linking him to the vacant post in his native Mayo.
McStay was reappointed as Roscommon manager in 2017 and still has one year left to run on his current contract. National media reports had linked him to the Mayo job following the resignation of Stephen Rochford on Monday.
Roscommon PRO Hugh Lynn reiterated what he had told national media on Wednesday morning when he spoke to People Sport yesterday evening.
“Kevin McStay is the Roscommon manager and as far as Roscommon GAA is concerned he will continue to be Roscommon manager,” he said.
McStay, who has guided Roscommon to a Connacht title in 2017 and the Division 2 title earlier this year, missed out on the Mayo manager’s job in 2014 following the resignation of James Horan. Horan has now been installed as the early favourite to succeed Rochford, while former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness is also believed to be in contention.
