Tyrone manager Mickey Harte believes it is "highly unlikely" that the Red Hands will win this year's All-Ireland title.

Harte, who has guided Tyrone to three All-Ireland triumphs, believes his team's Division Two status makes them outsiders.

"It is highly doubtful anyone from Division Two is going to win it," he said.

"If you want to look at teams that are going to do well, look at the top division."

Tyrone have been among the favourites for the Sam Maguire Cup for the past decade and Harte is not ruling a fourth success.

"I'm just saying it's highly unlikely, not impossible," he added.

"And I don't think that anybody from Division Three or Division Four, no disrespect to them, are going to win the All-Ireland."
