Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill has ruled out a return to Leicester City to succeed sacked Claudio Ranieri. O'Neill won the League Cup in 1997 and 2000 as Foxes manager.

The 64-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I wouldn't be going.

"I'm enjoying the job here (with the Republic) at this moment and we have some big games ahead."

O'Neill was then asked about the possibility of doing both jobs simultaneously.

"I hadn't even thought about it," he said.

"And if that were the case - not talking about myself, but in general if someone were taking time to do two jobs at the same time - I think there would be problems if you didn't get the results on both sides."

Former New Zealand international Ali Williams has been suspended by French club Racing 92 after he was arrested in possession of cocaine.

Toulon player James O'Connor, who has been capped 44 times by Australia, was also arrested in Paris in the early hours of Saturday, according to reports in France.

"A player of Racing 92 is at the heart of an investigation into the purchase and possession of cocaine," the club said in a statement.

"In this context, it was decided to suspend Ali Williams.

"If the investigation confirmed the possession of cocaine and the transaction, it would not only be against the law but also a serious fault in terms of our ethics."

Williams, 35, who was a part of the All Blacks side that won the 2011 World Cup on home soil, came out of retirement last summer to play for Top 14 champions Racing 92.
