RAITH Rovers are in talks with manager John McGlynn over his future at Stark’s Park, the Press can reveal.

McGlynn, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is keen to continue serving the Kirkcaldy club after five and a half years in charge.

And the Press understands that there is also a willingness on the part of the Raith board to hold onto last season’s PFA Manager of the Year - regardless of which division the club is playing in next season.

McGlynn revealed: “We’re getting close to an agreement.

“To be at at a club five and a half years is a long time in football management.

“I’ve certainly got great feelings for the club and some of the people I’ve worked with.

“It’s not been great season for us, but I’m very hopeful we can be working together next season with a view to trying to do better.”

Talks with out of contract players will remain on the back-burner until first division safety is secured.

McGlynn added: “There is an awful lot of uncertainty and the players deserve enormous credit for battling through it.

“Things will probably pick up pace if everything goes well on Saturday.”
