Former Swindon manager Danny Wilson has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a return to former club Barnsley.

Wilson, 51, who resigned as Swindon boss in March, is understood to be in the running for the vacancy at Oakwell following Sunday's departure of Mark Robins.

But Wilson, who led the Tykes to their only season in the top flight in 1997, said: "It's complete speculation at this stage."

He added: "I don't know if they're interested or not. I've had no contact with Barnsley, so I can't really comment on what's been said."


Asked if a return to Oakwell after 14 years would be an ideal chance for him to get straight back into management, Wilson added: "It depends which way you look at it. I'm quite enjoying my holidays."

Wilson, a former player at Barnsley, has also had spells as manager at Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City, MK Dons and Hartlepool.
