Accrington Stanley boss Beattie plays down Oxford links

Lancashire Telegraph: Beattie plays down continued Oxford links Beattie plays down continued Oxford links

ACCRINGTON Stanley manager James Beattie says he has not heard anything in relation to the vacant manager's job at Oxford United.

The Reds boss continues to be linked to the role, following the departure of Chris Wilder at the end of January.

Beattie distanced himself from the position last month but remains in the running, along with Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale.

But, despite rumours circulating in Oxfordshire that an appointment would be made on Friday and that Beattie was favourite, he insists he has not been contacted by the League Two club.

"I haven't heard anything," he said.

"I think it's credit to the boys if my name's getting linked to jobs that are vacant.

"I haven't heard anything personally.

"Nobody has called me or emailed me or texted me.

"I'm just concentrating on our next 10 games.

"We know how important they are to the boys and the club so that's what I'm concentrating on at the moment."
