Former interim Cork City boss John Cotter has left the club following the appointment of Neale Fenn as manager.

Then assistant manager Cotter took charge when 2017 double-winner John Caulfield departed in May after a poor start to the season left the side one place above the relegation zone.

Fenn took over on Monday with the Rebels slighly better off in seventh though not completely safe from the threat of a play-off.

Former City stalwart Cotter's last game in charge was last Friday's surprise FAI Cup defeat to Galway United.

He tweeted: "I have officially left @CorkCityFC. I have loved my time with the club and have made many great friends in that time.

"I would like to thank all the players, staff and supporters who all shared in the success we had and wish them even more success #CCFC84."
