first_imgDonegal manager Jim McGuinness has expressed his disappointed regarding Neil Lennon’s unexpected departure from Celtic. Jim McGuinness has said he will miss Neil Lennon following his departure from Celtic Park.McGuinness was appointed as a performance consultant at the Glasgow giants in November 2012, after majority shareholder Dermot Desmond recommended him to Lennon.Lennon has since parted company with the Scottish champions last month, saying it was time for a new chapter in his managerial career. McGuinness is keeping a close eye on developments at Celtic Park, but he paid tribute to Lennon for giving him his chance at the club.McGuinness said, “I’m following things like everybody else.“There is a lot of stirring and movement at the club.“I must say that Neil was excellent with myself. He was someone I had a good relationship with, chatting about Gaelic football on a Monday morning was great and it was good for me. “I’m sure whoever the candidate is, the calibre of people they’re talking about being in the frame are all top quality managers, and would bring a lot to the position.“For giving me the opportunity first and foremost, I have to be very thankful for that.With Roy Keane ruling himself out of the job, it is expected the Celtic board will choose between former West Brom manager Steve Clarke or former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay.McGuinness hopes to stay with Celtic but expects his role to change once they bring in their new manager.“I hope I will (stay), yes, but with change there always will be change, so we will see what it brings. “Whatever person comes in now, hopefully I will do my best regardless.For the time being McGuinness will focus his attentions on the Ulster SFC semi-final between Donegal and Antrim.Antrim defeated Fermanagh in a thrilling encounter at Brewster park last weekend and McGuinness knows the semi-final will be a difficult clash for his Donegal side.MCGUINNESS REVEALS HE WILL MISS NEIL LENNON was last modified: June 5th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Jim McGuinnessnewsSportlast_img read more

Sardar Singh feels Indian Hockey team deserves gold after all the hard work

first_imgSardar Singh is not new to responsibilities. He has been the face of Indian hockey for years now, often singlehandedly holding the team together in tough situations. Sardar has seen a lot of changes during his career – from coaches being axed to top players retiring; from not qualifying for the 2008 Beijing Olympics to making it to London four years later.Even after years of hard work, the midfielder’s love for the sport remains undiminished. With the team set for its next challenge – the Incheon Asian Games – Sardar is hoping to not just guide his team to a gold medal but also make a significant contribution to the team’s cause. “Besides the additional responsibility as skipper, I have always tried to ensure that my contribution as a player is not undermined. I never miss training sessions. I try to improve my performance every day,” Sardar told MAIL TODAY before the team’s departure to South Korea.So focused is the captain on the task at hand that he has even stopped using social networking sites to avoid distraction. “I have not been using my Facebook account for quite some time. My Twitter account is being managed by my fiance Ashpal Bhogal. I have tried to stay away from distractions.” Optimistic as always, Sardar feels the month-long camp was useful and the team is determined not to settle for anything except the gold medal. “We have prepared well and are just waiting for the Asian Games to start,” Sardar said.advertisement”With the way we have been training, the team deserves a gold medal. Of course, there are good teams like Korea, Pakistan and Malaysia, but I have full confidence in my team.”The skipper says his team might have an advantage in Incheon since they have been playing according to the new four-quarter format in the Hockey India League for two years. “All of us have played in the Hockey India League. So, we have a fair idea about the format,” he said.last_img read more
