Blackburn will hold a press conference on Thursday morning to confirm Henning Berg as their new manager.

After Rovers managing director Derek Shaw told Press Association Sport of the news, the club confirmed an 8:30am press conference at Ewood Park to unveil their new manager. Shaw revealed the former Norway defender became the board's number one choice on the back of an impressive interview.

"He interviewed well and he moved straight to the top of our list," said the ex-Preston chairman.
