NORTHERN Ireland boss Nigel Worthington insists he is not concerned that he is yet to sign a new contract with the Irish Football Association.

Worthington has verbally agreed a deal to stay on as Northern Ireland boss but is yet to put pen to paper on the contract.

Worthington explained: “It has been verbally agreed, the contract is there. The association's lawyers have looked over it. At the moment it is with the League Managers' Association's lawyers.

“As far as I am aware, there are no problems. It is a case of everything being right from a legal point of view.

“I am getting on with the job and enjoying it. I don't need to sign a bit of paper to do my job.”
