Calderwood ignoring speculation to concentrate on Hibernian

Hibernian boss Colin Calderwood is focusing on his job at Easter Road as reports of interest for his services from Nottingham Forest and Birmingham continue to circulate. The Scot has declared he would still be in charge when the Scottish Premier League kicks off next week following the saga surrounding his future.

And he has said that the matter is closed, "As far as we're concerned".

"I haven't heard anything about it for probably 10 days, two weeks," he added.

Calderwood insists there has been no negative impact behind the scenes even if some fans are unhappy.

"In the way the boys have worked, not at all," the 46-year-old said.

"The group has been excellent. It hasn't touched us at all in terms of affecting training or games.

"You come in and do your job, the focus is not on that. It may be for other people but it's not on that for me. So it doesn't touch you as much.

"I'm definitely aware that it affects the club and it affects supporters' thinking because they are the ones who are listening, reading and watching the coverage.

"But rest assured the work that's going in wouldn't be any different."
