Redknapp denies interest in Blackburn managerial vacancy

FORMER Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has denied having an interest in the vacant Blackburn Rovers job after heavy speculation arose linking him with the role.

The former West Ham and Portsmouth manager has also been linked with Queens Park Rangers where, ironically, popular former Blackburn coach Mark Hughes is under pressure, and it continues to appear that a Premier League post is likely to be his next destination which makes Henning Berg, Ian Holloway and Glenn Hoddle more likely to succeed the departed Steve Kean at Rovers.

“I haven’t met anyone from Blackburn and have no plans to,” said Redknapp. “As far as I am concerned there is nothing in it. It’s as simple as that.”

Blackburn’s previous moves to appoint former midfielders Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinlay have also both failed.
