Alex McLeish is refusing to read anything into reports suggesting he could be on borrowed time at Birmingham.
The Scot led the Blues to the Carling Cup final on Wednesday, overseeing a remarkable fight-back to dash West Ham's dreams at St Andrews.
He can now look forward to a day out at Wembley against Arsenal on 27th February, and that is exactly what he intends to do.
Reports continue to suggest that Premier League performances, which have largely disappointed this season, have put his neck on the line, but McLeish insists nothing could be further from the truth.
"I have never heard that from the club. It's people outside, external influences, that you can't control. There is nothing I can do about that," he told Sky Sports News.
"I guess people will say we are in the results business and they have had a couple of dodgy results, he must be under pressure. But I have never heard anything from inside Birmingham City. The board have never put me under any pressure.
"The pressure I put myself under, and have done throughout my career, is more than enough. I have standards and I try to focus on that, which is why I don't read the other stuff.
"I have never heard anything from the club. Once you start hearing things from inside the club, then it's time to be a bit concerned.
"The thing is, I have managed a club like Glasgow Rangers and there is no greater pressure than that because you are only ever one game away from a crisis at a club like Rangers.
"But I know the expectations in the Premier League and in England as a whole and I accept that. I accept the kind of thing that goes with it. It's a results business and it can be fickle, but I relish it and I don't get fed up.
"If I was to walk away from this job disillusioned, there would be a queue from here to Glasgow of people wanting to take my place."
McLeish admits that he is still working hard to bolster his ranks at Birmingham, with the January transfer window running down.
He has, however, refused to confirm whether there is any substance to speculation claiming he could be tempted to swap Swedish midfielder Sebastian Larsson for Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies.
He said: "I can't tell you anything about players coming in. It's not fair on the fans until we get the contracts signed. It's best I don't mention any names."
