McIver 'gutted' by qualifier defeat

Derry manager Brian McIver would not be drawn on his future after admitting to being 'gutted' by his side's All-Ireland qualifier round one defeat by Longford at Celtic Park.

The Oak Leafers lost 2-16 to 2-14, ending the League Division One finalists's interest in this year's Championship.

"We are very disappointed - Longford played like the Division One side and we were very porous - we gave away far too many scores and they missed very little," said McIver.

When asked to give his assessment on the performance of referee Martin Higgins, the Derry manager replied with a terse "no comment".
