Dundalk have decided not to renew the contract of manager Darius Kierans.

Last week the Lilywhites avoided relegation by overcoming Waterford United 4-2 in a two-legged play-off.

But the Louth club endured a miserable season winning just four games and finishing bottom of the Airtricity League Premier Division table.

"This was a very difficult decision as Darius has carried out his duties in a very professional manner" - Dundalk statement

The statement read: “After an end of season review by the new Board of Management at Dundalk Football Club, the club has made a decision not to renew the contract of Darius Kierans for the 2013 season.

“This was a very difficult decision as Darius has carried out his duties in a very professional manner and has shown high levels of professionalism and dedication to the difficult task of keeping Dundalk in the Premier Division.

“We have no doubt that Darius has a long career in professional football ahead of him."
