Ex-Man Utd star ​Scholes cool on being new Oldham boss

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is highly unlikely to take charge of Oldham following reports that he had met with the League One club.

BBC Sport understands the ex-England international spoke to the club purely in an advisory capacity and has no interest in the managerial vacancy.

The 42 year old is a boyhood Oldham fan but has not managed at senior level.

Oldham have been without a manager since John Sheridan left in September with the Latics bottom of League One.
