London:

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp said on Tuesday that he had no interest in assuming the vacant manager's position at English Championship side Blackburn Rovers, despite claims in the British press.

Redknapp, 65, who along with Argentine legend Diego Maradona was reported to be a sought-after candidate for the Blackburn board of directors, but the ex-Spurs boss moved to quash speculation.

"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," Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"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 (into football) and I'll just wait and see what happens."

Eric Black has been serving as Blackburn's caretaker manager since Steve Kean resigned from his post last month.

Kean was appointed after Rovers were taken over by Indian poultry giant Venky's and sacked popular manager Sam Allardyce, outraging fans.

His 21-month reign was dogged by resentment among supporters, particularly after relegation from the top flight English Premier League. He left the club in September, describing his position as "untenable".
