Shearer on Hughton

I can'd find reference to this story anywhere else, so assume the reporter actually spoke to Alan Shearer, and that perhaps had been approached by him.  If so it's interesting because he seems to be putting a bit of distance between himself and the job.  Which is decent of him, really, because you've got to wonder how serious he is about it.  If he saw himself as the new Keegan, as many Mags do, he really should be out learning his manager's trade in League 1 or, the nether regions of the SPL.  There are always jobs going.  My head was in the applied linguistics books at the end of last season, but from what I did see, he didn't do a great job.  And he's right, Hughton deserves a crack at it.
