Steve Wigley has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant manager's role at Bristol City, as St Johnstone admitted they would listen to compensation offers for boss Derek McInnes.

Wigley has taken temporary charge of training with the Robins while a replacement for recently departed manager Keith Millen is found, but he told the Bristol Evening Post that he has no interest in taking on the position full time.

"I won't be applying for the job," he said. "I've no idea what will happen now, but that is all part and parcel of working in football."

However, McInnes has emerged as a front-runner to fill the Ashton Gate hotseat, and St Johnstone chairman Geoff Brown told the BBC that the Saints would let the 40-year-old discuss terms should a compensation package be agreed. No formal approach has yet been made to St Johnstone by City.

Other names featuring prominently in speculation surrounding the post are Mark Robins, who is also being linked with Nottingham Forest, and Dave Jones.
