Former Celtic player Willie McStay is reported to be in the running to become the new manager of Irish Premiership club Cliftonville.

Officials at Solitude say they would like to appoint Eddie Patterson's successor in the next week.

McStay was recently sacked by Scottish First Division club Ross County after a run of nine games without a win.

Former assistant boss Tommy Breslin, who has been in temporary charge, is also a contender for the position.

Breslin, a former Cliftonville player, was right-hand man to Patterson who was sacked on 1 April after more than five years in charge.

McStay, brother of Celtic legend Paul, has also had spells in charge of Sligo Rovers and Hungarian club Ujpest.
