Career

Mervue United

Ryan Manning started his career playing for Mervue United in the League of Ireland First Division, the second tier of Irish football. He spent one season there in which Mervue reached the League of Ireland Promotion/Relegation Playoffs but lost out to Longford Town on penalties in the semi-final after a scoreline of 3–3 on aggregate.

Galway United

After a single season at Mervue he moved to fellow First Division side Galway United for the 2014 season.[2] Manning and Galway had a brilliant season as they went on to win promotion to the Premier Division via the Promotion/Relegation Playoffs, with Manning scoring in both legs of the final as United brushed aside Premier Division outfit UCD in a 5–1 aggregate win.[3]

Queens Park Rangers

In January 2015 Manning was signed by Queens Park Rangers on a two and a half year contract.[4] The then manager Harry Redknapp stated he was delighted that Ryan had signed for QPR after having received interest from other Premier League clubs.[5]

After Redknapp departed QPR, Manning initially did not feature under the first team under managers Chris Ramsey or Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. But, with the arrival of Ian Holloway, he was given his first team debut on 31 December 2016 against Wolves a game that Rangers went on to win after having had a run of six consecutive losses. He performed so well that he was hailed by his manager as having been "outstanding".[6] Manning described his own debut as a dream come true, especially as he only received his squad number the day before.[7] He impressed in his next two games, which were all victories, and he was thus awarded a new contract tying him to the club until 2019.[8][9][10] He rounded off the month by scoring his first league goal against Fulham on 21 January, in a game which ended in a 1–1 draw against their west London rivals.[11]

Rotherham United (loan)

On 16 August 2018, Manning joined Rotherham United on a loan deal until the end of the 2018–19 season. Manning was recalled by QPR in January 2019. He made 18 appearances and scored four goals for Rotherham during his time on loan at the New York Stadium.[12]

Swansea City

On 16 October 2020, Manning joined fellow Championship side Swansea City for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year contract.[13] He made his debut for the club on 27 October, starting in a 2–0 victory over Stoke City, a victory that saw Swansea move into the automatic promotion places.[14]

International career

On 6 November 2018, Manning was named in the senior Republic of Ireland squad for the first time for the friendly against Northern Ireland on 15 November and the UEFA Nations League match against Denmark on 19 November 2018.[15] He made his senior international debut against Bulgaria in the UEFA Nations League 18 November 2020.[16]
