Former Aston Villa coach Kevin MacDonald is an early favourite for the Blackburn Rovers job.

Henning Berg, who signed a three-year contract on October 31, managed to steer the club to just one victory in his 57 days at the helm and the 1-0 defeat at Middlesbrough on Boxing Day saw them slip to 17th in the Championship table.

Mark Hughes - the former Rovers boss - and Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood are also contenders.
