Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll has not ruled himself out of the running for the vacant job at Sheffield United.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, O`Driscoll said, ‘There’s not a lot that I can say about it that isn’t going to go down the line of what every other manager says when there’s speculation about his position, whether it’s under threat or he gets linked with another job.

‘Until something concrete happens I don’t know what you’re supposed to say. It’s a big club with a great tradition and a good infrastructure and we’re trying to get there with Doncaster, so I don’t know what else to say. If an opportunity came up and I felt it was the right opportunity then you’d have to consider it.’

United are looking for a new manager after their boss Gary Speed resigned to take over the Wales national managers job this week.

The former Bournemouth manager joined Rovers in 2006 and led the club to their first domestic trophy in their history in his first season when they won the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.

His CV was further enhanced when he took Rovers from League One in 2008 for the first time in fifty years, after they beat Leeds United in the Play off final.

They have been amongst the favourites for relegation in their three seasons since promotion but they have established themselves as a consistent Championship side who play with an excellent brand of football that as earned them the tag ‘Arsenal of the north`.

Burnley came close to luring O`Driscoll to Turf Moor in January after holding talks with the Lancashire club only for him to decide to stay at Rovers.
