The Candystripes boss has admitted his disappointment with the season but has moved to dismiss speculation that his job is under threat
The Candystripes suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat against Sligo Rovers on Saturday September 29 and Devine admitted his disappointment.
"It is out of my hands - there is no-one more disappointed in this city than myself," he told BBC Sport. "It's my first first job in management and I have learned an awful lot. I'm very determined and focused to do well for this football club.
He continued: "The speculation does not bother me - I'll keep my head down and I will keep concentrating on what is right.
"We have an opportunity to win a trophy. The players and backroom staff are working hard to achieve that bit of success before the season finishes," concluded Devine.
Meanwhile, Derry City have received a boost with the news that midfielder Barry Molloy has agreed a new two-year deal with the club.
The 28-year-old joined the club in 2005, after spending two seasons at Drogheda United, and has been a regular fixture in the Candystripes team.
