Ex-Bolton boss Megson in Middlesbrough frame

Former Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is in the frame for the Middlesbrough job.

The Mirror says Megson has been out of work since Bolton sacked him last December but he is desperate to get back into the game and has a top record in the Championship.

Boro supremo Steve Gibson is ready to move fast for a replacement and could even speak to Megson today as he decides on his choice - and would want a face-to-face to make his judgement.

Megson is still officially on gardening leave at Bolton but senior Wanderers sources confirmed that they would not stand in his way or be awkward if Boro wanted to take him on immediately.
