Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway admits he's trying to change his public persona.

Ollie feels he's regarded as a "comedian" by the football public.

"I'm trying to talk in a way so people don't think I'm funny any more, I'm fed up with that," said the 50-year-old.

"I'm not a comedian, I'm a football manager - at the end of the day that is what I do. You will have my interviews every week and they will be serious and I will be talking about football."
