Colin Hendry not interested in Blackburn Rovers job

Former Blackburn Rovers defender Colin Hendry rules himself out of the running for the club's vacant managerial job.

Blackburn Rovers coach Colin Hendry has insisted that he is happy to continue in his current capacity at the club.

Hendry was brought to the club as a coach by former manager Steve Kean and he had been suggested as a possible replacement for the departed boss, but Hendry has revealed that he is content to remain in his current coaching role.

Hendry told talkSPORT: I'm very lucky in what I'm doing, being back at the club that I love. I've been out of the game for five years.

"When you are looking at candidates for this position, I don't think you need to look any further than the man in charge at the moment, Eric Black. He's got all the boxes ticked, that's for sure.

"If it's a bit of experience that they need to go and look for I agree with that. I don't think it should be anything but an experienced man. But I'm enjoying working for the football club in my capacity at the moment."

Black has failed to win a match as caretaker manager since taking over from Kean last month.
