Blackburn midfielder Craig Hignett has being linked with the Barnsley job, after manager Steve Parkin and his assistant Tony Ford were sacked on Tuesday.  Hignett was reported by the "Independent" to be one of several possible candidates for the jobs along with Paul Wilkinson and Ronnie Glavin.  In Hignett's case he would probably be assistant to Paul Wilkinson if appointed.

However Barnsley denied the rumours on Thursday saying that while they were in administration, reserve team coach Glyn Hodge would be the caretaker manager.

Hignett was signed from Barnsley in the summer of 2000 by Souness, for over 2 million pounds.

The source of some of the least believable football rumors, TribalFootball carried this earlier this week and I discounted it. However if The Independent are carrying it maybe there is some truth in it (or maybe The Independent have resorted to using NewsNow for research :) ).
