Wolverhampton Wanderers have moved to quash a report that the club are considering hiring Gary Megson as their manager.
Wolves are currently 19th in the Premier League, a point from safety, following a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Blackburn last weekend.
The club's hierarchy, in particular owner Steve Morgan, has come in for heavy criticism from fans, with a protest staged after the loss to Rovers.
Supporters have questioned the handling of the appointment of Mick McCarthy's successor after Terry Connor was eventually handed the job when talks with a number of targets broke down.
Connor's worrying start to his time in charge has already led to conjecture over his future, with Megson, who was sacked by Sheffield Wednesday two weeks ago, linked with his job.
But in a statement posted on the club's official Twitter account, Wolves denied a report published in Thursday's Daily Mirror: "No truth in today's Gary Megson story at all."
Megson is a former manager of West Bromwich Albion, Wolves arch local rivals, and twice led the Baggies into the Premier League. His appointment at Molineux would be controversial among the fans.
