Blackburn have withdrawn Steven Reid from the Republic of Ireland squad after the midfielder was surprisingly recalled this week.

Reid is near full fitness after 14 months of problems with knee and back injuries but Rovers boss Mark Hughes does not feel he is ready for top-level action.

The 26-year-old will now stay with Rovers next week rather than report for Ireland ahead of their Euro 2008 qualifier against Wales.
