Go Get O’Neill Says Faddy
Written by RockSport on January 8, 2018
Scotland risk losing out on top target Michael O’Neill if they do not move swiftly for the Northern Ireland manager, warns James McFadden.
O’Neill, 48, is the Scottish FA’s preferred candidate to succeed Gordon Strachan but they have yet to offer the £500,000 needed to release him.
Northern Ireland want O’Neill to sign a new deal and he is expected to make a decision on his future shortly.
“You’ve got to go and get him,” said former Scotland star McFadden.
“Bigger nations, bigger clubs, they just do it. You don’t hear ‘this is who we want’ and then not meet the compensation. Meet the compensation, then speak to him.”
