Blackpool boss Ian Holloway refutes job link

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has rubbished speculation that he is a potential successor to Sam Allardyce at Blackburn.

Rovers are looking for a new manager after the shock sacking of Allardyce by the club's owners, Indian poultry firm Venky's, on Monday.

Holloway's name has been connected with the vacancy, but as far as the 47-year-old is concerned, he is going nowhere.

“I know I've got a few chickens but it is ridiculous to link me with that. It is absolute rubbish,” Holloway said.

“I signed a contract at Blackpool in the summer, which lasts this season and next season, and I am more than happy. I don't need to talk to anybody.

“I haven't got an agent and I don't really want one any more. I am just happy talking to my chairman about the job I'm doing here.”
