Stephen Bradley is staying on as Shamrock Rovers manager, having turned down the chance to take over at Lincoln City in League One.

On today’s show, we play our chat with him from the Liberty Hall in late March when he tells us about how a traumatic, nearly-fatal assault in London when he was an Arsenal trainee set him on his coaching path – but not before taking a heavy psychological toll.

We even find time to tell him what we think he should do in the opening minutes of the show… before Ken brings us the news, as it happened, that he was staying put in the League of Ireland.

Plus there’s a GUTTED Declan Rice, Ibrox bangers, and a gratitude-filled Frances Murphy’s TV Guide.
