Roy Keane text messaged Niall Quinn his resignation from Sunderland

London, Fri, 05 Dec 2008 ANI

London, Dec 5 (ANI): Former manager of English Premier League club Sunderland, Roy Keane, reportedly text messaged his resignation to chairman Niall Quinn.


Keane, who quit the club on December 4 after being in charge for just 27 months, refused to answer Quinn's desperate calls on December 3 and instead sent him a text message.


The text has been seen as a snub for Quinn who has handed his former international teammate more than 80million pounds to spend.


"He officially resigned this morning. We'd been in negotiations for the last few days to see if we could provide a solution together," the Sun quoted Quinn as saying.


"At all times every conversation was qualified by what was in the best interests of the club.


"Ultimately Roy has decided in the best interests of the club that somebody else takes the next chapter of where this club goes.


"In the circumstances, having slipped in the last few weeks, Roy, as he says himself, is his harshest critic and he felt that he'd completed his journey here.


"He didn't want to get unstuck any further and find ourselves in deeper, darker territory. It is a disappointing day," Quinn added.


Ex-Bolton and Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce, Hull chief Phil Brown and Celtic boss Gordon Strachan are in the early running to replace 37-year-old Irish. (ANI)
