Stephen Kenny has quit Derry City FC to take up the manager's post at Shamrock Rovers.

Mr Kenny, originally from Dublin, told Derry City chairman Philip O'Doherty on Christmas Eve that he was leaving the Brandywell for League of Ireland champions Rovers.

It is believed that Rovers will pay Derry City compensation for Mr Kenny's services.
