Mowbray denies any interest in Boro job

HIBERNIAN manager Tony Mowbray has firmly distanced himself from any possible return to his former club Middlesbrough as a replacement for under-fire manager Steve McClaren.

McClaren and chairman Steve Gibson were confronted by angry fans after Boro’s 4-0 defeat by Aston Villa at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday.

The latest disappointment in an erratic season was followed by reports that Middlesbrough players told former team-mate Jonathan Greening they are beginning to question their manager’s methods.

There have since been calls from fans for the return of their former skipper, who became a local hero during his spell at his hometown club in the 1980s and early 1990s.

But Mowbray, preparing his side for a Bank of Scotland Premier League game against Livingston, said: "It’s something I’m pretty uncomfortable talking about because I don’t want to talk about the job of someone I respect as a great coach."
