It was long thought that Redknapp would not entertain the thought of managing Rovers but both the Daily Mail and the Lancashire Telegraph have been quoted as saying that the former Southampton, Portsmouth, Spurs and Bournemouth manager would be interested in a get together to discuss the vacant position at Ewood Park.

Since that news became public knowledge it has emerged that Rovers would like to bring the man famous for slouching over an open car window whilst pooling on cost grounds with Joe Jordan in for talks over the job with interviews for the position underway as of today.

Sky Sports are saying that 'Blackburn Rovers have expressed a strong interest in speaking to Harry Redknapp about their managerial vacancy.

The Venkys would have to lay on a private jet daily (each way) fro Bournemouth to Manchester and then a chaffeur to Brockhall if 'Arry was to even consider this so I'm afraid it's a No Go from minute one

No, Harry doesn't say he's interested: a load of journalists looking for a story say he's interested. A quite different thing! There is no way he would move fro, or commute all the way from, Poole. he's witing for the QPR or Reading jobs to come up.
