Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has distanced himself from growing speculation that he is interested in the vacant manager’s job at Blackburn Rovers.

The Championship leaders are in need of a new boss after Steve Kean quit Ewood Park in September but have failed in approaches for Tottenham technical coordinator Tim Sherwood and Fulham coach Billy McKinlay.

“I haven’t met anyone from Blackburn and have no plans to,” the former Tottenham boss told BBC Sport.

“As far as I am concerned there is nothing in it. It’s as simple as that.”

The club have interviewed Henning Berg, who enjoyed two spells at Ewood Park as a player, while Blackpool boss Ian Holloway remains under consideration.

Reports in Tuesday’s tabloid media suggested that Rovers have approached a Argentine legend Diego Maradona about taking over as boss, while ex-England manager Glenn Hoddle has also been mooted for the role.

Redknapp was favoruite for the England job when Fabio Capello stepped down from the role in February but missed out, with Roy Hodgson the FA’s preferred choice.

The 65-year-old has been out of work since his surprise sacking by Spurs in June but lives on the South Coast is reportedly only willing to accept a position within driving distance of his Poole home.

Kean stepped down as Rovers boss last month after nearly year in the job. The Scot was vilified by the clubs’s fans and was frequently booed by a diminished home crowd at Ewood.
