Former Preston North End winger Gareth Ainsworth has been linked with the Blackburn manager’s job.

Ainsworth, 43, who had three spells playing at Deepdale, has been Wycombe boss since 2012.

Rovers are searching for a new manager to replace Paul Lambert, who activated a break clause in his contract to leave Ewood Park at the end of the season.

Rochdale boss Keith Hill, Hibs manager Alan Stubbs and Hartlepool’s Craig Hignett are others to be linked with the 
vacancy.
