OLD­HAM boss Lee John­son ad­mits it’s flat­ter­ing Barns­ley are re­port­edly flut­ter­ing their eye­lashes at him – but his loy­alty to the Lat­ics re­mains firm.

John­son, 33, is among the book­ies’ favourites to join the Tykes, who dis­missed Danny Wil­son af­ter a home de­feat to Fleet­wood Town ear­lier this month.

But John­son said: “If you go on a night out and three girls take a shine to you, it’s flat­ter­ing,” he said. “But you might have been mar­ried ten years so it doesn’t mean you’re go­ing to bat an eye­lid.

“I’m re­ally happy here. It’s a great club but of course any in­ter­est is flat­ter­ing whether it’s Barns­ley, Manch­ester United or Brack­ley.

“But my fo­cus has al­ways re­mained on the team, as it al­ways will.”

Else­where, Swin­don turned down an ap­proach by the Tykes for their manager Mark Cooper ear­lier this week, who in­sists he has un­fin­ished busi­ness at the County Ground.
