Lindsay McKeown: Jeffrey under pressure to stand down

Former Linfield skipper Lindsay McKeown believes manager David Jeffrey was pressurised into announcing he would be quitting at the end of the season.

McKeown, a team-mate of Jeffrey's during Roy Coyle's tenure at the Belfast club, said the board at Windsor Park felt the time for change had come.

Jeffrey has been Linfield boss for 17 years, winning 30 trophies.
