Offaly's top brass has set the wheels of a senior football management review in motion following last Sunday's Leinster SFC defeat to Wicklow.

The Faithful County has washed its dirty linen in public in the days since the 1-15 to 1-20 extra-time defeat to the Garden County.

Claims of player unrest have dominated the headlines and speculation is mounting that manager Stephen Wallace's position is untenable.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, County Board chairman Tommy Byrne admitted: "It is disappointing to hear and read what has been said and written about Offaly football in the media the past few days."

He added: "No county wants that. We are going through a review at the moment, but no end conclusion has been reached."
