Laws shrugs off latest sack talk

Burnley boss Brian Laws has shrugged off a fresh series of reports claiming that he is on borrowed time at Turf Moor.

Laws only took the reins at the Premier League strugglers in January but the appointment of the former Sheffield Wednesday boss has failed to spark the revival the Clarets had hoped.

They have lost 11 of 13 Premier League games under Laws and find themselves languishing in the relegation zone with just five games remaining in the season.

But despite Laws' brief tenure coming under the microscope, the man himself claims he is unperturbed by the latest round of reports which suggest he could be sacked should they lose at fellow strugglers Hull City on Saturday.

"Whatever headlines have been written, it's part and parcel of the game," Laws told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"I can't influence it, all I know is I'm planning for a game for this weekend.

"I've been working on the players regarding our strategy for the weekend and I've been working on the short and long-term strategy of the football club.

"I've been doing that with the chairman and (operational director) Brendan Flood.

"As far as I'm concerned we carry on as we have been. I can't stop rumours. I don't lose sleep over them either."
