Ajax manager Frank De Boer has ruled himself out of the running to be named the next Liverpool boss.

The former Dutch international said he was 'honoured' by the link, but insisted his future remained with Ajax. De Boer had been one of a number of names linked with the vacant Liverpool post, but the former Rangers player wants to continue his good work in Holland.

The Ajax boss has guided the Dutch club to consecutive Eredivisie titles since taking on the role in 2010, and insists he has unfinished business in Amsterdam.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, De Boer said: "I am honoured by the request, but I am only just getting started with Ajax.

"In Amsterdam we are on a new path and, along with the club and Wim Jonk and Dennis Bergkamp, my colleagues in the technical heart, I want to bring good things.

"That's why I will stay loyal to Ajax in the coming years."

De Boer spent eleven years with Ajax as a player and the club legend has returned to reinvigorate the club after a seven year Eredivisie title drought.

His decision to turn down an interview from Liverpool is the Anfield club's second snub in as many weeks after Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers elected to reject an interview request.

The Reds are reportedly considering a number of candidates in the search to replace Kenny Dalglish, including ex-Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and Wigan manager Roberto Martinez.
