Ireland Manager Martin O’Neill is set to announce an extended squad today, ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Moldova next month.
O’Neill is likely to face further questions about his contract, which remains unsigned.
Meanwhile, Adam Rooney gave the Ireland boss a timely reminder of his goal-scoring ability last night.
The striker headed the only goal as Aberdeen beat St Johnstone to book their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup.
Rooney is competing against Scott Hogan and Wexford’s Kevin Doyle for a place in the panel.
