Former Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has admitted that he was disappointed with Barry Fry's claims that he had been "tapped up" in the aftermath of his departure from London Road - and has also declared an interest in the vacancy at Sheffield Wednesday.

Director of football Fry made the claim in a press conference following Ferguson's surprise exit in November but Ferguson insists that there was no truth in the claim at all.

Ferguson told Sky Sports: "I left six weeks ago and I'm still out of work so there is obviously no truth in it at all. The first thing I did was go on holiday. I made a statement thanking the club for giving me an opportunity and left it at that."

He added: "The club should maybe have done the same but I am not in control of what Barry Fry does or says.

"It was disappointing that he came out with that but I was not tapped up at all.

"The situation was clear to me, the club had lost confidence in me and you can call it mutual consent or whatever you want but we all know what it was."

Ferguson has been linked with a return to the Championship at Hillsborough and admitted that the job interests him.

He said: "Since I left there has been some interest but I decided to have a bit of a break and spend some time with my wife.

"But I am having itchy feet now and I want to get back involved and I would be interested in talking to Sheffield Wednesday."
