first_imgCrystal Palace have suffered another blow in their hunt for a new manager after Tim Sherwood ruled himself out of the running, according to widespread reports.The former Tottenham boss was considered to be leading the way to succeed Tony Pulis following the breakdown in negotiations between Malky Mackay and the Premier League side on Wednesday. But Sherwood is now believed to have informed the south London club he is not interested in taking over.The ex-Spurs player was interviewed about the post over the weekend before the Eagles switched their attentions to appointing Mackay, only for talks to falter regarding the makeup of the Scot’s backroom team.It then emerged the former Cardiff boss had been reported to the Football Association for his alleged part in a series of racist, sexist and homophobic texts with ex-Bluebirds sporting director Iain Moody.Palace then reapproached Sherwood about taking over but similarly to Mackay, it is believed the 45-year-old’s desire to have control over who assists him has proved a stumbling block.It means that Palace caretaker manager Keith Millen and ex-Celtic coach Neil Lennon are now considered the favourites to succeed Pulis at Selhurst Park.
