Justin Edinburgh has today ruled himself out of the running for the vacant managerial position at Gillingham, reports Kent Online.

Edinburgh did however admit that the job was of interest him, but he is now set to sign a contract extension at League Two Newport County.

“The speculation has been there and it’s been tough for me. I can’t pretend it wasn’t a situation that potentially interested me.” said Edinburgh in an interview with The South Wales Argus. 

“But the club have always been good to me and I do feel I owe them some loyalty as well.

“I had one or two questions and they have been answered by (director) Howard Greenhaf and I am pleased to end the speculation because I have enormous affection for Newport County.”
Edinburgh has become the second manager to rule himself out of the running for the vacant Gills position after AFC Wimbledon manager Neil Ardley declared himself out.
