Speaking to the BBC, Jim was asked about his decision to drop the All Star from the county panel during the Ulster GAA writers awards in Bundoran this weekend.
“I don’t have a lot to say on it,” said Jim who is understood to be surprised at the continuing controversy.
“It has been a difficult period. We’ve had ups and downs during the year and it’s not an issue to dwell on. It has been dealt with now and we have to move on from here. There has been a lot said, but we have to move forward,” he added.
Asked about the county side in general, the manager said: “We got a lot of criticism during the year but people should understand that we are not Kerry or Cork.
He said the Belfast newspaper the Irish News – owners of the free adsheet Letterkenny Post and Donegal Post – had written off Donegal and put the county in 19th place in a ranking system.
“We have come a long way,” said McGuinness.
