Hughes Focused On Rovers
Mark Hughes has reiterated he is happy at Blackburn following mounting speculation linking him with the vacant Newcastle manager's job.
The former Wales boss is the bookmakers favourite for the job after Harry Redknapp rejected the chance of succeeding Sam Allardyce.
However, Hughes appeared to distance himself from a move after Sunday's 2-1 victory against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium following a late winner from substitute Jason Roberts.
Hughes said: 'I have support from the chairman (John Williams) and the board. That is something you do not give up lightly.
'The fact is I have continuity here and a good situation. Things are in place and I am very conscious of that.
'All I am trying to do is my job to the best of my ability with the help of my staff.
'I am not into self-promotion but speculation has surrounded me in the past.
'But I am still Blackburn manager and have a job to do here.
'In football you need time and I have been given that. I am proud to be manager of this club.'
This is certainly encouraging stuff from our excellent gaffer. Lets here some more of it.
Surely exactly what we all wanted to hear???
