Shamrock Rovers FC have confirmed that manager Michael O'Neill will leave his post after their final UEFA Europa League Group A game, Thursday's home match against Tottenham Hotspur FC.

The first Irish team to reach the group stage of a major UEFA club competition, they have lost all five of their Group A fixtures so far.

"Shamrock Rovers can confirm that manager Michael O'Neill will leave when his current contract finishes at the end of December," the club said in a statement. "We would like to thank Michael for the great success he has brought during his three-year tenure, and we wish him the best for his future career."
