Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has denied he has been in contact with Blackburn about the vacant managerial role at Ewood Park.

Solskjaer, who is currently the manager of Norwegian champions Molde, was believed to have expressed an interest in the position which became available following the resignation of Steve Kean last week.

However, the 39-year-old denied he has been in touch with the npower Championship club. He said: "We have gone up this path before and it is only speculation. It will happen when it happens, that I have to pick up the phone to (Molde owner) Kjell Inge Rokke regarding a job offer, but I have not spoken to Blackburn as yet."
