The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Stu­art Mar­shall

BIRM­ING­HAM City manager Gary Rowett sees his fu­ture at St An­drew’s de­spite be­ing tipped as a po­ten­tial tar­get for Derby County.

Derby boss Steve McClaren con­tin­ues to be strongly linked with the manager’s job at New­cas­tle United.

If he was to leave, that would present the Rams with a ma­jor prob­lem to re­place him.

But ex-Bur­ton boss Rowett, 41, is tak­ing the spec­u­la­tion in his stride.

He said: “I said the same thing at Bur­ton. We had spec­u­la­tion f or two years there about clubs com­ing in.

“I just said, ‘Look, when I am work­ing for a club I just do that job with a hun­dred per cent con­vic­tion’.

“For me, suc­cess comes by do­ing the right thing. Suc­cess for me at the mo­ment would be im­prov­ing what we have done at Birm­ing­ham and see­ing if we can push ne xt sea­son and be a top ten team.”
