Armstrong interested in NIR job

Updated: October 12, 2011

Former Northern Ireland striker and football pundit Gerry Armstrong has said he would be interested in replacing Nigel Worthington if the IFA decide on a part-time appointment.

Iain Dowie has already expressed his interest while Shamrock Rovers pair Michael O’Neill and Jim Magilton have been linked with the position after guiding the League of Ireland club into the group stages of the Europa League.

Armstrong told Sky Sports News: “I have got the capabilities to do the job but I don’t know if I want to do it on a full-time basis. I think it’s a part-time job, the manager will probably be in place 45 to 50 days a year, and if they wanted a full-time manager I probably wouldn’t be interested in it. If it was a part-time job then I probably would be interested.”

Armstrong served his time as assistant to former international boss Lawrie Sanchez from 2004 to 2006.
