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.

Rovers have been without a manager since Steve Kean left the club last month, and they have failed to land the likes of Tim Sherwood, Billy McKinlay and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.'

Shebby Singh and Derek Shaw are the men tasked with finding a new boss and after yesterday's club statement it is believed that a shortlist has been drawn up (again) with up to 8 names on it.

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.
