Paul Dickov admits he was flattered to be linked to the vacant manager’s post at Sheffield Wednesday but insists he has unfinished business at Rovers.

Dickov has moved to distance himself from the Owls job after a week of betting market activity which saw him backed into second favourite at one point.

Paul Dickov says he is dedicated to the building job at Rovers.

Paul Dickov says he is dedicated to the building job at Rovers.

The 41-year-old insists he has no desire to walk away from the Keepmoat with the ‘building job’ that attracted him to Rovers in the first place far from complete.

“I came here in the summer and I wanted to try and building something, and not just on the pitch,” Dickov said.

“It’s working with the community to arm to try and get more fans into the stadium.

“And working with the centre of excellence, doing things like Monday night when I’ll be coaching a group of under nines, tens and elevens.

“For me, it’s always been about the future of the club and trying to build it in the right way both on and off the pitch.

“I’m completely dedicated to that.

“You’re obviously flattered by talk like this a little bit because it means both as an individual and a club you’re doing something right.

“But from my point of view I’m more happy with what I’m doing here.

“I don’t want to go anywhere.”
