JACKETT ON A SHOOGLIE PEG

KENNY JACKETT could re­place Alex Neil as man­ager of Nor­wich City.

Ex-Hamil­ton Ac­cies boss Neil is un­der mount­ing pres­sure at Car­row Road af­ter a dis­mal, win­less six weeks through Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber.

Now it has been re­ported that the for­mer Wolves gaffer could be drafted in as his re­place­ment af­ter quit­ting Rother­ham United five games into a three-year deal.

For­mer Wolves chief ex­ec­u­tive Jez Moxey holds the purse strings at Nor­wich and has a solid work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Jackett, stem­ming from the gaffer’s suc­cess­ful three­year stint at Mo­lineux.

The prospect of a re­union could ap­peal to both men, with Nor­wich des­per­ate for pro­mo­tion back to the Premier League, and Neil (be­low) un­der in­creas­ing scru­tiny.

GABLE ENDIES TO CASH IN?

THE last man­ager to earn Al­bion Rovers a money-spin­ning Scot­tish Cup tie could be about to make a re­turn to foot­ball.

James Ward has emerged as a can­di­date for the va­cant man­ager’s job at Montrose.

Rovers earned a Fourth-Round shot at Celtic by beat­ing Queen of the South in mid­week.

Ward se­cured an Old Firm pay-day when he led the Rovers into a quar­ter-fi­nal tie with Rangers back in March, 2014.

SMART MOVE BY AN­NAN

AN­NAN ATH­LETIC and striker Smart Osado­lor could be re­united in the trans­fer win­dow.

The 25-year-old re­turned to train­ing with the Gal­a­bank side af­ter un­suc­cess­ful spells at Stran­raer and East Kil­bride.

Ath­letic are await­ing clear­ance from the SFA de­spite Osado­lor turn­ing out in Se­nior and Low­land League foot­ball this sea­son.

WALK­ING ON AARON

STRAN­RAER could give for­mer Kil­marnock striker Aaron Splaine a route back into the game af­ter more than six months out.
