Crystal Palace manager latest: Tim Sherwood rules himself out of vacant job

Former Spurs manager no longer interested

Tim Sherwood has ruled himself out of the race to become Crystal Palace's next manager.

The former Tottenham manager had become the favourite to replace Tony Pulis after Malky Mackay withdrew from the race following the revelation of his text messages to Iain Moody.

But now Sherwood has dealt the south London club's hierarchy another blow by telling them he isn't interested.

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon is now the bookies' favourite, with current caretaker Keith Millen, former West Brom boss Steve Clarke and Chelsea's international head coach Dermot Drummy under consideration.

Millen will again take charge for the match against West Ham.
