McDonald appointed as Glens boss

Glentoran has appointed former Northern Ireland captain Alan McDonald as its new manager, BBC Sport understands.

McDonald, capped 52 times, was a coach at the Oval under previous boss Paul Millar and had been expected to form part of Roy Walker's backroom team.

Walker was unveiled as the club's new manager last week but was unable to take up the post as he did not hold the required Uefa A Coaching Licence.

McDonald is thought to have agreed a two-year deal with the Glens.

The Glens are expected to officially unveil McDonald at a press conference which has been called for Tuesday morning.

Walker is understood to have held discussions with Glentoran officials on Monday.

When contacted on Monday evening, Walker said that he was "considering" his response and would release a statement to the media later this week.
