Anthony Rainbow has been linked with the vacant Roscommon senior football manager's position, with officials believed to be looking outside the county to find a successor to Kevin McStay.

With McStay standing down in early September, Roscommon are the only senior football side yet to confirm a manager for next season, but former Carlow manager Rainbow is understood to be on their radar.

With his Ballyboden-St Enda's side exiting the Dublin senior football championship at the semi-final stage last weekend, the Kildare legend is available to take up the position, according to the Irish Independent.

Several other outside candidates are believed to have been contacted about the job, including former Mayo manager Stephen Rochford and Dublin ladies football manager Mick Bohan - both ruled themselves out at an early stage, but Anthony Rainbow has emerged as a front runner, with an appointment expected in the coming weeks.
