Norwich City chief executive David McNally has played down reports that the club has spoken to Malky Mackay or Neil Lennon.

The Cardiff City and Celtic managers have already been linked with the Carrow Road job following Paul Lambert's departure but McNally has rubbished that speculation.

"It is interesting I have seen it reported we have contracted them [Cardiff and Celtic], but we haven't and I would like to put that on record," he told Sky Sports News HD.

"Celtic and us get on very well but I can confirm that no approach has been made to Neil Lennon, we would go straight to them quietly and privately."
