Harry Redknapp keen on Blackburn Rovers vacancy


The former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is reported to be interested in taking over at the Championship side Blackburn Rovers. Redknapp has been out of work since leaving Spurs in June and is said to be keen to fill the manager's role at Rovers, which was vacated earlier this month when Steve Kean was sacked.

Redknapp has been working for his old club Bournemouth in an advisory role for the past few months and would represent something of a coup for Blackburn owners Venky's if they can persuade him to join.
