Football: Mackay not heading to Palace

posted in: News | 0

Sky sources understand Malky Mackay will not now be appointed as manager of Crystal Palace.
Talks have broken down between the Scotsman and the club, and it is now very unlikely that he will become the new manager.
Mackay interviewed for the role along with former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood at the weekend and was thought to have impressed chairman Steve Parish.
Bookmakers had suspended betting on him being chosen but the only news to emerge from the club was that caretaker boss Keith Millen will take charge of Thursday’s press conference to preview this weekend’s London derby with West Ham.
Millen oversaw last week’s 2-1 defeat to Arsenal, when the Gunners snatched victory through a late Aaron Ramsey goal less than 48 hours after Pulis’ shock departure.
Pulis took charge in November with Palace the heavy favourites to fall out of the division, and led the Eagles on an inspired run which saw them finish 11th.
Mackay had been set to be reunited with Palace sporting director Iain Moody, who worked with him at Watford and Cardiff.
Mackay was sacked by Cardiff owner Vincent Tan last December, with the team lying in 16th in the Premier League table.
