However, Redknapp has insisted that he has no interest in taking charge at Ewood Park.
"I woke up this morning and saw the papers that said I was supposed to be having an interview for the job which is a load of nonsense," he told Sky Sports News.
"It's a good club and good job for somebody but it is not a job that I will be looking to pursue. It's not something that I will look to do in the future. Like I say, it's a good club but it's not for me."
Redknapp has been out of work since he left Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.
