Danske Bank Premiership club Coleraine have parted company with manager Rodney McAree.

The 44-year-old leaves after one season - and a sixth-place finish in the league.

The Bannsiders say it's by mutual consent and the process of recruiting a new boss will now begin.

The former Dungannon Swifts manager was appointed in September 2018, following the departure of Oran Kearney to St. Mirren.

McAree had led the Swifts to the BetMcLean League Cup just seven months previously and inherited a team that had finished second in the  Premiership and were Irish Cup winners in 2018.

His last match was Tuesday's 5-3 extra-time defeat in the Europa League play-off semi-final at Cliftonville. 

The Reds host Glentoran in the final this evening, with a 5.30 kick-off.


Transfer news and Crusaders have signed Jarlath O'Rourke from Dungannon.

He's the second Swifts defender to make the move to Seaview this week, following teammate Chris Hegarty. 


In the League of Ireland last night - 

Derry City drew 1-1 with St. Pat's at the Brandywell. 

Barry McNamee scored the goal. 

Declan Devine's men stay fourth in the standings.
