Ex-Blackburn defender Hendry not in running for manager's role

Colin Hendry has revealed that he does not want to run for the vacant Blackburn Rovers managerial position.

The former Rovers centre-back is being linked with the job following Steve Kean's departure recently but has made it clear that he does not have plans to be more than a coach under current caretaker Eric Black.

"No, not at all. I'm very lucky in what I'm doing, being back at the club that I love. I've been out of the game for five years," said Hendry when quizzed on whether he wants the job or not.

"When you are looking at candidates for this position I don't think you need to look any further than the man in charge at the moment, Eric Black. He's got all the boxes ticked, that's for sure.

"If it's a bit of experience that they need to go and look for I agree with that. I don't think it (should be) anything but an experienced man. But I'm enjoying working for the football club in my capacity at the moment."
