I think there's a fair chance this is Kenny's last season with us, and depending on how Europe goes, he could even go in the summer if the right job came up for him. That said I think he would only go to a job where he was given a total rebuild, or he knew and liked the players. Not sure he'd fancy a Dunfermline/Rovers again.

Anyway I hope there's succession planning in place. We all know it's on the cards, would be daft to get caught out.

A long term contract is urgently needed.

By far, and I mean by a considerable distance, the best news from anyone that signed on for 2017, was having Kenny on board for another season.

When does his current contract end by the way, is it the end of 2018?

A longer term contract would not stop Stephen Kenny leaving for an attractive offer that appealed to his ambition.

But what it would achieve is to give the club some leverage through seeking compensation. This could effectively rule out a move to another League of Ireland club and give bargaining power if the UK claim came calling.

I have no doubt that the club willing be looking to agree an extension to his current contract sooner rather than later.
