Ex-Villa, Leicester, Celtic boss O'Neill will not take Northern Ireland job

Martin O'Neill has reportedly ruled himself out of the race for the vacant Northern Ireland national team manager's role.

The former Aston Villa, Leicester City and Celtic boss had been linked with the job following the resignation of Nigel Worthington after the Euro2012 qualifying campaign but he has said he is not in the running.

O'Neill told BBC Radio Ulster that he wants to return to club football rather than take the reins of his national team for which Jim Magilton, Iain Dowie and Michael O'Neill are all linked.
