Mad Dog puts hand up for Crystal Palace job

Former Gillingham boss Martin Allen has put his hand up for the Crystal Palace job.

The Sunday Mirror says the 48-year-old boss, sacked by Gillingham last month, believes he can succeed Ian Holloway, keep Palace in the top flight and have his contract reviewed next summer.

Allen said: "I honestly believe that with the players Palace have got, I can keep them up.

"If you look at my record, I have been able to turn things around at clubs who looked doomed.

"I would love the chance to manage at Premier League level and I am confident that I can keep Palace in the top flight."
