The Northern Irish manager was a big admirer of Swansea City defender Ashley Williams, but the committee deemed he was too old and not a glamorous enough signing.

The Mail goes on to say Klopp would only move to the north-west of England if he was the unanimous choice among the Liverpool board, with some figures still believing in Rodgers.
The former Swansea boss is still in the hot seat at Anfield and the 3-2 win over Aston Villa may have brought him more time in the fight to save his job.
The return of Daniel Sturridge could be a turning point in their season; the England international showed his talents yesterday with a double against the Villains.
If he can rediscover his form of the 2013-14 campaign and steer clear of injury, the 26-year-old could single-handedly save Rodgers.
However, the prospect of Klopp taking charge of the Reds could be too good an opportunity to turn down.
