Martin O'Neill - The Missing Years

Friday, 17 August 2012.   Page 55 - Inside Football

In today's "Inside Football" article, Rob Tanner reviews former Leicester City manager Martin O'Neill's 25 years in football management.

However, according to Mr Tanner ," O'Neill moved on in 2005 to manage Celtic"... but most records indicate that he left Leicester City on 1st June 2000 to go to Celtic where he remained until the end of the 2004/05 season.

Was he only on loan at Celtic or has the Mercury's football expert got it wrong again? - You decide!

An article about Leicester City's failure to sign Anthony Gerrard, the accompanying photograph clearly shows a delighted Nick Barmby celebrating with Matt Fryatt.

Still they are both footballers so that's near enough for the Mercury!
