The Blues are out of the playoff promotion battle after defeat in the semifinal to Blackpool last night.
Hughton has been linked with the West Bromwich Albion job and said: "It's very difficult for me to comment on anything because anything's that's been mentioned at all has always just been speculation.
"And I think it's probably not fitting at this moment."
He added: "I'm sitting here and everything that's been said about me has very much been speculation. It's certainly not the right moment because it's about a group of players. I'm as devastated as they are because we've got so close."
