Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is sensationally set for a return to management with Blackburn Rovers as he heads up North to begin talks with the club.

Redknapp is set to interview for the job which has a surprisingly good shortlist of candidates, with Ian Holloway and former player Henning Berg also making a good impression on the powers that be at Ewood Park.

After finally parting ways with Steve Kean not to mention doubts over the ownership of the Venky’s, global advisor Shebby Singh is well aware a coup is needed to get the fans back onside and securing a manager as respected as Redknapp would certainly do this with the Telegraph calling it “too good an opportunity to miss.”

Redknapp was of course keen to land a move back to the top flight of English football but after the vote of confidence was issued to Mark Hughes at QPR, Redknapp is believed to be looking at other options and sees the Lancashire side as a serious prospect.

Should the former frontrunner for the England job take the troubled Championship side on, current caretaker manager Eric Black feels that the club will have surpassed themselves, labeling Redknapp as “an exceptional manager. I think he would be a sensational appointment.”

When it comes to his own future however, Black – who steered the club to a last gasp victory against Sheffield Wednesday was more coy, claiming “the game at Watford is my only target, that’s all I’m looking at.”

    Harry Redknapp attending an interview at Blackburn Rovers is as ridiculous as Clint Eastwood auditioning for a role in Emmerdale .

    It takes a lot to be classified as worse owners than the Yanks at Liverpool but the clowns at Venkys have managed to make that look easy .

    Any manager with any kind of established reputation & or genuine ambition wouldnt just be stupid to work for either of those regimes he would be foolish , crazy & stupid !

    Venkys will have to go the FSG route , bribe the press for favors & beg some relative unknown from either the obscurity of the division lower than them or some greenhorn who managed to keep a newly promoted side in the same division as them for a season .

    Blackburn like LFC are in big trouble .

    English football isn’t just on the slide its round & about half way down the slippery slope of imploding while indulging in its favorite pastime of savoring every sniff of its own smug ars*hole .

    The future of English football is CGI figures playing out scripted results as opposed to today where the FA pays its officials to referee politically favorable results instead of refereeing the actual sporting contest .

    Its about time UEFA flushed the toilet .
