Peterborough Evening Telegraph
'...Ferguson has again been forced to distance himself from press reports linking him with the vacant managerial job at Championship side QPR, this time in the little-known London Informer.
An article on the outlet’s website suggested that Ferguson had priced himself out of the job by demanding a £20,000 per week salary and a lengthy contract.
Ferguson will consult his lawyers over the article. He said: “It’s totally laughable. Neither I nor the club have had any contact with QPR and I will not be going there, it’s as simple as that.” Peterborough Today

Sky Sports - Routledge unruffled - Wayne's world turned upside down, but he stays focussed
- Wayne Routledge is refusing to let recent unrest at Queens Park Rangers get to him.
- The winger dropped in on Goals on Sunday towards the close of a turbulent season which has seen him forced out of the first-team reckoning at Aston Villa, join Cardiff City on loan before finally signing for the moneybags West Londoners.
- And then, no sooner had he settled in at Loftus Road than it was all change again, with Paulo Sousa getting the sack and Gareth Ainsworth taking temporary charge.
- Routledge admits to being more than impressed with Sousa but refused to let his departure dampen his desire to get his career back on track.
- "The whole situation was strange but we're players: my job is to play football," he told Goals on Sunday
- "That's what we're there for and nothing will change from that perspective. I want to play and enjoy myself and hopefully win as many game as I can with QPR.
- "I want to get back into the Premier League as soon as possible. I felt we could do that speaking to the manager we had at the time, Paulo.
- "With his thoughts and how he wanted to the game to be played I thought QPR was the right place to be.
- "He was amazing. Everybody will tell you he won back-to-back Champions Leagues but in terms of my time in football I don't think I've ever met anyone with his knowledge of football. It's just not possible to catch him out
- "I remember when I started there and I first talked to him; we must have been talking for two hours without even wondering about the time.
- "He'll be back - very soon from what I'm hearing.
- To make matters worse, Routledge and his QPR team-mates ended up unwelcome guests at Wolves' promotion party on Saturday.
- A goal from Sylvain Ebanks-Blake finally took Mick McCarthy's men back into the Premier League, but not without the odd frayed nerve here and there.

"We got there and there was tension around," said Routledge. "You could hear people singing 'we're going up, we're going up', but there was still that nail-biting tension.

"When we made chances there were big 'oohs', then when they made chances and didn't take them it got worse and worse.

"I thought 'if we score this place is going to be dead' but they scored and that was it... eruption. They didn't stop singing until the end of the game.

"I've been there, I got promoted with Crystal Palace and it's a great feeling. Obviously Wolves will be up there next season and good luck to them." Sky Sports
