Ex-Posh boss Ferguson hits back at claims he has a job lined up

Former Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson has insisted claims that he already has a job lined up are untrue. Ferguson's odds have tumbled to be the next Hull City manager following his departure from the East Anglian club.

His availability has led to reports suggesting Ferguson could replace under pressure Phil Brown.

In a statement issued through the League Managers' Association, Ferguson said: "Unfortunately, Barry Fry has today intimated that I already have a new position in place.

"I can categorically confirm that is 100 per cent untrue. However, these comments have not impacted upon my feelings towards my time at Peterborough United, the players, the chairman and the support.

"Three years ago Kevin Russell and I arrived at Peterborough United, a League Two club; we left yesterday, having taken them to the Championship, and we wish the club all the best for the future of the club."
