Paisley Daily Express - - Theti Cket -

North­ern Ire­land as­sis­tant man­ager Jimmy Ni­choll re­mains set to come on board with St Mir­ren de­spite hav­ing failed to put pen to pa­per.

A fort­night has passed since the 61-year-old was first linked with a coach­ing po­si­tion with the Pais­ley out­fit.

Boss Oran Kear­ney con­firmed that he still plans to add the ex­pe­ri­enced coach, for­merly of Raith Rovers and Hibs, to his back­room team that al­ready con­sists of Brian Rice, Al­lan McManus and Andy Web­ster.

Kear­ney said:“There has not been a huge rush to get him in. We had three games in a week last week.

“If some­thing is to hap­pen then it will hap­pen af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break.

“It has not been some­thing that has been a pri­or­ity to sort be­cause of the time frame we have.

“I was chat­ting to him on Wed­nes­day and we are still in con­tact and look­ing to get a deal done.”
