Swans Boss Rodgers Would Consider Scotland Loan
Friday, 28th Jan 2011 10:58
Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers says he would consider signing Town striker Jason Scotland on loan, if he became available. However, the Northern Irishman is yet to make an approach for the 31-year-old former Swan, who joined the Blues from Wigan in the summer.
Rodgers said: “He is someone who had two fantastic years here and scored a lot of goals. Everyone knows Jason’s qualities and if he became available for a loan we would have to consider it.
“There was a possibility to buy him in the summer, but we didn’t have that sort of money and there were other things we needed to look at at the time at the club. But he is certainly a player that could be interesting.”
The ex-Watford and Reading manager says he has as yet made no move for the Trinidadian: “I don’t know what the situation is with him because I’ve not asked the question. Maybe it’s a case that he wants to play, but I’ve not spoken to anyone and he’s an Ipswich player.”
Elsewhere, former Blues boss Roy Keane has been somewhat speculatively linked with the manager’s job at Sheffield Wednesday currently occupied by Alan Irvine.

More Marmite than Marmite - an Evening with Roy Keane by Superfrans
Whether Roy Keane should go down in history as the worst manager to helm Ipswich Town is an arguable point - but it is hard to dispute that he is the most divisive Town employee in the club's 136-year history.
A Moment With Roy in Sainsbury's by TimS
It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
When The Keane Machine Broke Down by Pessimistic
The American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce once said that in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale and the diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. I suppose in the sad case of Roy Keane we were left with a bit of an ass who turned out to be pig ignorant!
