​Ipswich place Chelsea legend Lampard on manager shortlist

Ipswich are hoping to appoint a manager in the coming weeks following the departure of Mick McCarthy.

And there is some suggestion that Chelsea legend Frank Lampard could be in the fray for the job.

More than a 100 managers have applied for the job. But it appears the Ipswich board are looking at Lampard as the man to lead them into next season, per Sky Sports.

They are also being linked with the St. Mirren manager Jack Ross. But he was unclear on the potential of joining Ipswich.

"I think there has been communication between the clubs, but at the moment I don't know anything more than that," Ross told Sky Sports News.

"At the moment my work and my focus is very much on trying to build a squad that will be progressive here and until that changes it will remain the case.

"This club has been great for me because it has offered me that chance to prove myself in the last 18 months and I want to try and get better. For as long as I'm here, hopefully, that will be the case."
