Alan Shearer admits he is interested in becoming the next Blackburn boss.

The former Rovers striker, who had a short spell in management with Newcastle, spent four years at Ewood Park as a player.

Asked about his interest in the job, Shearer said: "I've not spoken to the Blackburn owners. If they approached me I would speak to them.

"It's a strange one at Blackburn, I'm sure they had a plan with Steve Kean but it's now a tough situation.

"Whoever takes over, they have to make sure it is the right choice. With my history at Blackburn, I would speak to them if they called me but I think things would have to change."

Rovers have been without a manager since Steve Kean's decision to resign at the end of September, saying in a statement that his position had become "untenable".

Owners Venky's have attracted criticism for their running of the club but Rovers are among the early pace-setters in the Championship.

Shearer's spell in charge of Newcastle ended in relegation from the Premier League after they took just five points from his eight games at the helm.
