McParland: ‘We have to get on with it’
IPSWICH caretaker manager Ian McParland said it was a big shock to hear this morning that Roy Keane had been dismissed as Blues boss.
McParland, who will take charge of Sunday’s FA Cup third round game at Chelsea, said: “The coaches are disappointed and the players are disappointed, but we have to get on with it.
“Roy Keane is a good manager and there have been very small margins - we could easily have had another six to nine points.
“You could see from the last two games the effort that the players have been putting in.
“We were heading in the right direction.
