Dougie Freedman admits he is focused on Crystal Palace's trip to Millwall on Saturday and not speculation linking him with a move to Bolton.

Odds have plummeted in the last 24 hours, with the Palace boss the bookies favourite to take over from Owen Coyle at the Reebok Stadium, following his sacking as Wanderers boss last Tuesday.

Palace currently occupy 4th place in the Championship and Freedman has denied reports that he is set to leave Selhurst Park and pitch up at the Trotters.

"I cannot stop speculation, but I am very happy to be playing Millwall this weekend and that's all I want to say," Freedman 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 and I am keeping my fingers crossed that my players come back from international duty without any injuries.

"I am also keeping my fingers crossed that I have prepared in the best possible way so that we win the match.

"Those are the facts, let's stick to the facts.

"When I was younger, 19 or so, and there was speculation that I'd be playing for Rangers and Celtic, at that age I found it quite difficult to deal with, but as you get older, you can brush it aside."
