Stephen Bradley will be in the dugout with Finn Harps for Friday night’s Shamrock Rovers league meeting, but the 37-year-old is still debating his future.
Radley has an offer to take over as coach of League One’s Lincoln City and is tempted by the opportunity.
But the Dubliner will have talks with the Hoops before there is any clarity on where he stands.
Developments were halted as Bradley spent Wednesday attending his grandmother’s funeral.
Training as usual this morning, he told his team to block out any noise and focus on a week where they have three home games with Sligo Rovers on Monday before title rivals Derry City come to Dublin 24 next Friday.
Whatever happens, Bradley will be in charge of the Harps encounter.
But where he will be in seven days is unclear.
Doubts have been expressed whether Rovers sporting director Stephen McPhail would go to Lincoln with Bradley and assistant Glenn Cronin if the boss asked said yes.
However, it looks like McPhail will go with Bradley if that scenario materializes – he would have a role on the first-team coaching staff.
Rovers don’t want Bradley to leave but Ireland’s chief scout and analyst Stephen Rice is the frontrunner should he go.
