KARL Robinson says rumours linking him to the vacant Blackpool job were news to him.

The Oxford United boss is the fourth favourite in the betting for the Bloomfield Road hotseat, which would be a move closer to his native Liverpool.

"I’ve done many games. Whatever happens in my career it doesn’t really matter to me, I only care where my players go.

"If something happens and things don’t fit right at a certain place I know there will be other things I can go and do.
