Former Tyrone midfielder Enda McGinley says he has been approached over the vacant Antrim football manager’s position.

Lenny Harbinson stepped down as Saffrons boss last week and the Antrim county board has now approached the three-time All-Ireland winner as they look for a successor.

Speaking to BBC Sport NI, McGinley, who is a brother-in-law of Antrim stars Michael and Tomás McCann, confirmed that contact has been made.

"There has been a discussion and I'm sure there's been discussions with other people," said the 39-year-old whom managed Derry side Swatragh this year.

"It's a big responsibility so it's being weighed up at the minute."

He added: "There has been an approach made but with all jobs of that stature there is a big lifestyle commitment, there's a big assessment of whether you are definitely the right man and if you can pull together the right team to make the most of that opportunity."
