McKay Backs The Wally With The Brolly!!!
If former Blackburn Rovers manager Don McKay had his way Steve McClaren would be the man to replace Mark Hughes at Ewood Park.
Former England coach McClaren has been out of work since being sacked by after a disastrous spell in charge of the International side but he is being put among the names being touted to take over the Ewood hot seat. It is understood that despite the fact that he was on the verge of joining Dutch club FC Twente he has turned this down in preference to a job in England with the one at Rovers interesting him a great deal, and McKay is backing him.
McKay told Radio Lancashire: "I've worked with Steve and he had undeserved bad press for the way England failed to reach Euro 2008.
"Blackburn need a manager like Steve who can bring through young players.
"I'm not being disrespectful but the person they bring in has got to have managerial experience."
McClaren has himself now confessed an interest in the job as he is ready to get back into management.
McClaren told BBC Radio 5 Live: "Of course that would interest me.
"Unfortunately what happened with England was a huge failure but I want to get back into management."
Personally I don't think that "the wally with the brolly" is going to get much backing from the Rovers fans though!!!
