Dons’ youth team coach among candidates to replace Foran at Caley Thistle

Caley Thistle last night sacked Richie Foran as manager and they want to speak to former Inverness midfielder Paul Sheerin about replacing him.

Foran paid the price for Caley Thistle’s relegation from the Premiership after he was dismissed by the club yesterday.

The former club captain was appointed on a four-year deal last summer but has lasted just one season after failing to keep the club in Scottish football’s top flight.

Foran won three of his last four games but it was not enough to keep the club in the top flight with four wins coming in the previous 34 this season.

The late rally offered hope of a great escape but in the end it was a case of too little, too late for the club.

Inverness are keen to complete the process of finding Foran’s successor as soon as possible, with Aberdeen under-20 coach Sheerin a leading contender.

Sheerin, who played in the club’s famous Scottish Cup win at Celtic in 2000, won the Third Division title with Arbroath before being lured to Pittodrie by Dons manager Derek McInnes.

He has enjoyed further success with the Dons, guiding the under-20 team to the SPFL Development League title in 2015.

The Highlanders are expected to make an approach to the Dons for permission to speak to their youth team coach.

Former Dundee manager Paul Hartley is also under consideration as he has experience of winning promotion from the second tier previously having guided Dee to the Championship title in 2014.

Caley Jags’ demotion has already led to a change in the boardroom, with Kenny Cameron stepping down as chairman a week.

Willie Finlayson replaced Cameron and the new Caley Thistle chairman has wasted little time in making a change.

Finlayson said: “Richie has been a great servant to ICT FC and put 100% into his job as manager and previously as a player.

“We all thank him for his service and wish him and his family all the very best for the future.”
