'I left Rovers in good nick, they should have won the title'

'As a coach, you're never making decisions, you're not determining whether players are getting contracts, or whether they are in the team, so it's much easier to have a relationship with players as a coach than as a manager,' said O'Neill, who led Rovers to the title in 2010 and 2011.
