Swindon’s Iffy : We Didn’t Hire Big Ron

Posted in Football at 3:06 pm by

Despite numerous reports that much travel manager / disgraced TV pundit Ron Atkinson had taken a consultancy job at Swindon Town, manager Iffy Onuora denies having given Big Ron the gig.

Swindon on Wednesday denied they have appointed former Manchester United manager Ron Atkinson (above) as a consultant.

Atkinson, who lost two media jobs after a racist remark he made last year about French defender Marcel Desailly, was quoted as saying he would team up with Swindon’s black coach, Iffy Onuora.

But Onuora said Atkinson was only hosting a TV documentary at the club.

“We have got a staff of people here which I am very happy with,” Onuora said. “Results are showing we are not doing too bad. Any other help we will get will be great – but Ron is here to front a TV show.”

Currently in progress, QPR, looking to bounce back from their Boxing Day loss at Brighton, are leading Cardiff City 1-0 courtesy of a 47th minute goal from Marc Nygaard.

Live right now on FSC, the much maligned former QPR striker Peter Crouch has scored his 4th goal in his past 3 matches, Liverpool leading Everton, 2-1 at intermission.
