Redknapp rules out Blackburn job

Harry Redknapp has dismissed speculation linking him with the managerial vacancy at Blackburn.

The 65-year-old was sacked by Tottenham in June following speculation linking him with the England job, and an advisory role with AFC Bournemouth has been the extent of his involvement with the game since.

But after rumours he was set to be unveiled as Steve Kean’s successor at Ewood Park, Redknapp told Sky Sports: "I woke up and saw the papers and they said I was supposed to be at an interview for the Blackburn job. It’s complete nonsense, obviously.

"It’s a good club and it’s a good job for somebody but it’s not one I’ll be pursuing.

"When we saw the speculation my representative Paul Stretford spoke with them to clear up where it was coming from but it’s not something I would look to do.

"They’re a good club with a good squad and good support but it’s not for me.

"I’m starting to get bored. You can only play golf every so often and my golf isn’t improving. I’m looking to get back in (into football) and I’ll just wait and see what happens."
