Redknapp no to Rovers

Harry Redknapp has dismissed reports linking him with the vacant managerial post at Blackburn.
Rovers have been without a manager since Steve Kean resigned to end a troubled reign a month ago.
Speculation suggesting Redknapp could be the next man in Ewood Park hotseat began to gather pace at the end of last week and reports this morning suggested the he was set for talks with the Rovers hierarchy today.
But the 65-year-old, who has been out of work since parting company with Tottenham this summer, is not interested in managing the npower Championship outfit.
"When we saw the speculation, I asked where it was all coming from, it`s not for me," he told Sky Sports News.
"They`ve got a good squad, a good support but it`s not for me.
"Blackburn is a good club with great traditions going back many years, with Kenny (Dalglish) going there and winning the championship, they have a real tradition.
"It`s not something that would be for me."
Former Norway international Henning Berg is the current bookmakers' favourite for the Blackburn job, while Argentinean icon Diego Maradona was linked overnight.
Approaches for Berg's fellow ex-Rovers Tim Sherwood and Billy McKinley have been rejected by Tottenham and Fulham where the pair hold respective coaching roles.
