Colin Hendry insists he has no intention of putting himself forward for the vacant manager's post at Blackburn.

Former Rovers centre-back Hendry was brought onto the club's coaching staff by now-departed boss Steve Kean in the summer.

When asked by TalkSport if he was interested in becoming Blackburn's manager, Hendry said: "No, not at all. I'm very lucky in what I'm doing, being back at the club that I love. I've been out of the game for five years."

The 46-year-old remains at Ewood Park working under caretaker boss Eric Black, who he feels would be ideally suited to the role on a permanent basis.

"When you are looking at candidates for this position I don't think you need to look any further than the man in charge at the moment, Eric Black. He's got all the boxes ticked, that's for sure," he said.

"If it's a bit of experience that they need to go and look for I agree with that. I don't think it (should be) anything but an experienced man. But I'm enjoying working for the football club in my capacity at the moment."
