Blues boss Gary Rowett has dismissed the speculation linking him to the vacant Hull City job, insisting he remains fully committed to Blues.

After the sacking of Steve Bruce, the Tigers are looking for a new manager to turn the ship around and cope with the pressure of the new Premier League season.

A struggle off the pitch, many managers in the running for the job may be put off with the lack of funds to build on their small squad going into the new season.

With Rowett being one of the favourites in the past few weeks, the Blues boss has shrugged off any speculation.

He told the Mail:

“Rumours about Fulham, rumours about QPR, rumours about Derby, rumours about Hull yet I am still here talking to you,” said Rowett.

“I kind of wish people would maybe give me a little bit of credit as well that I am not just going to have my head turned with every single move. We all know how the game works, you can never say never as a manager, you never say never as a player of course but I think I would hope my commitment wouldn’t be questioned.”

After this interview Rowett has now drifted out to 22/1 from the bookies.
