Within minutes Shamrock Rovers had denied the reports forcing RTE into an apology only 25 minutes after the original tweet was posted.

It's not the first time RTE's twitter account has posted rumours of a Shamrock Rovers manager. They were a bit premature with news of Stephen Kenny's sacking last year too.

Shamrock Rovers aren't happy.

Croly's high spending Shamrock Rovers team lie in 5th place in the league and are closer in points to the bottom side Bray than they are to leaders St Pats. They've lost their last 3 games.  We'll have our weekly Airtricity League wrap up later.
