Royals cut Ferguson from shortlist

03 June 2009 06:10
Reading had an approach for Ferguson rebuffed last week and the Championship club have now confirmed that Ferguson is not on their final shortlist of four candidates.

Fry told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "All these clubs and all this speculation, Darren can't help it, he's been linked with every job that there's a managerial vacancy for, which is not his fault.

"But we've only had one enquiry and that was from the director of football at Reading where he said he had a list of 12 that he was going to his chairman with and Darren was on that, would we give them permission to speak to him.

"And the rest is history, we said no certainly not.

"The same director of football phoned me on Saturday morning to say that he'd seen his chairman, he'd drawn up a shortlist of four and Darren wasn't on it so that's the end of it as far as we're concerned."
