Ferguson assures Everton over Blackburn rumours


Everton coach Duncan Ferguson has assured the club he's not had contact with Blackburn Rovers.

The Liverpool Echo says Ferguson has told Blues colleagues that he is completely unaware of any interest and has had no talks whatsoever. The Scot, now 50, had two playing spells at Everton between 1994-98 and 2000-06 before returning to Goodison Park to join the coaching staff in 2014.

Ferguson has twice served as caretaker manager but ahead of what proved to be his only game in charge of the second stint in January this year (a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa), he said : “I'll always dream about becoming Everton manager, but of course I've not quite got that experience."

Meanwhile, another former Everton player, coach and caretaker manager David Unsworth has also been linked with the Blackburn Rovers vacancy.
