Former Celtic and Manchester United striker Henrik Larsson is in the frame for the Blackburn Rovers post.

The Daily Mail says Larsson is the shock new name being considered by Blackburn Rovers to replace Steve Kean.

The ex-Barcelona forward, 41, took his first job in management with Second Division side Landskrona to learn the ropes after finishing his playing career.

The former Sweden international, who won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2006, wants a job in England after telling Landskrona he will not be renewing his contract when their domestic season ends next month.
