O'Neill quiet on contract front

01 April 2010 05:28
Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill has refused to discuss his future at the club until the Premier League season comes to a close. The former Celtic boss was rumoured to be ready to leave the Midlands outfit following a fall-out with Villans owner Randy Lerner, but O'Neill has dismissed the media reports and claimed his relationship with the American entrepreneur is as strong as ever. "There is not an ounce of truth in the story that I have had a fall-out with Randy Lerner," he said. "In fact, he called me earlier in the week to see where these stories were coming from. "He was pretty surprised and also very supportive and it was good to hear that. "It is nonsense to say that I want to walk away now. There is still so much to play for and there is a renewed determination to see it through. "I will assess everything at the end of the season. I am contracted on a yearly basis and would hope to continue."
