Speculation linking Norwich City assistant manager Colin Calderwood with the managerial vacancy at Northampton Town has been dismissed by Canaries boss Chris Hughton.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Calderwood led the Cobblers to automatic promotion from League Two in 2006, after two previous failures in the play-offs, and then left for Nottingham Forest.

The former Swindon Town and Tottenham Hotspur defender led Forest back to the Championship but was sacked with his side struggling at the wrong end of the table and then joined up with Hughton at Newcastle United.

He then had an unsuccessful spell as manager of Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League, before joining up with Hughton against at Birmingham City and subsequently at Norwich.

Bookmakers were offering odds as short as 4/7 for Calderwood to return to Northampton yesterday, but Hughton said he was not aware of his assistant being linked with the vacancy.

“That’s news to me,” the City boss said. “If anything like that has been mentioned, I presume it’s because he was an ex-manager there but it’s absolutely nothing that I am aware of.

“What you’re telling me now is actually first-hand news, the first I’ve heard of it.”

  • I hear a counter-rumour that he`s going to Villa as "Specialist Assistant" to Lambo. Holty was the instigator of the move. It is widely known that his poor form at Wigan was because he has been pining for his (tor)mentor.

  • Could it be that the Northampton chairman has an inkling that Calderwood might be looking for a job anyway in the next week or so?

  • Is Hughton standing on a box, Alan Ladd-style, or is Bewilderwood in a hole? Good people-watching there, canarykid - though snapshots can be misleading, it does seem to be their normal posture. That is, when Calderdash isn`t hanging from the rafters or schmoozing in the Directors` Box.

  • Good luck with the interview, my finger are certainly crossed that he goes, then that would be at least one out, maybe just maybe Trollop would go as his assistant. PLEASE.
