Blackburn managing director Peter Shaw has stated that Alan Shearer is in consideration for the vacant manager’s position.

The Lancashire club sacked Steve Kean recently, and are currently looking for a replacement that can lead the side back to the Premier League.

Shearer fired Rovers to the Premier League title in 1995, and Shaw has admitted that the BBC pundit could well be in the frame.

“I’m sure it would be a popular appointment, but even more than getting fans excited we need a good manager who’ll get us to the Premier League and keep us in the Premier League,” Shaw told Sky Sports.

“Obviously someone with Alan’s football record, he’ll be on the list that we have a good look at.

“I wouldn’t confirm anything at this moment in time. There’s a number of names being put forward for our job, those names have been forwarded on to the owners with comments.

“We’re possibly getting a little bit nearer the interviewing stage but there’s no one ruled in and no one ruled out at the moment, so I can’t really comment any further,” he concluded.

Roy Keane and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are also names being speculated as candidates in the press.
