Phil Brown turns down Limerick FC job - report

Former Hull City manager Phil Brown has turned down the chance to manage Limerick FC after failing to agree financial terms with the newly-promoted Airtricity Premier Division club, according to a report in the Irish Independent.

Limerick had been confident of capturing their man after positive discussions last week, and Brown had been expected to take the reigns at Thomond Park this week.

However, the former Derby County, Hull and Preston North End boss could not agree a deal with the club, and also is keeping his options open with regards managing in England.

The Airtricity First Division champions are already eyeing up other potential cross-channel candidates for the vacant position, with former Celtic assistant manager Alan Thompson joining a long list of rumoured successors to Pat Scully, that includes Kenny Cunningham, Jason McAteer, Les Ferdinand, and Peter Taylor.
