Strong rumours had circulated in the national media Martin O’Neill will replace the Israeli as boss regardless of today’s game, a claim denied.

“There has been a lot of talk and people trying to put two and two together, but nothing has been said at the club he will be leaving,” the source said.

“It is just a normal day and everyone is concentrating on beating Arsenal. The rumours circulated are not true.”
