CRYSTAL Palace manager Dougie Freedman has dismissed reports linking him with the Bolton job – insisting that beating Millwall on Saturday is his only priority.

Freedman says he does not want speculation about his future to detract from the Eagles' build-up to the forthcoming South London derby at Selhurst Park.

Freedman is currently the bookmakers' favourite to replace sacked Owen Coyle.

"I cannot stop speculation, but I am very happy to be playing Millwall this weekend and that's all I want to say," he told the Croydon Guardian.

"I cannot deal with speculation, I have too much to do in this job. I only deal in facts, and the facts are that I have a game against Millwall this weekend.

"I am keeping my fingers crossed that my players come back from international duty without any injuries, and I am also keeping my fingers crossed that I have prepared in the best possible way so that we win the match."
