Former Real Madrid coach Raddy Antic is being linked with the Blackburn Rovers job.

The Sun says Antic, 63, has applied for the post and is on Rovers' shortlist as their bid to prise Tim Sherwood away from Tottenham stalls.

The Serbian has the support of Ewood managing director Derek Shaw, who is keen on an experienced manager to replace Steve Kean.

Antic, who spent four years as a player with Luton, boasts an impressive CV having managed both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
