Long: I'm ignoring Pool link

Leading West Brom scorer Shane Long has shrugged off speculation about a January move.

The Republic of Ireland international has been in impressive form which has seen him linked with several clubs, including Liverpool.

But Long said: "I'm just concentrating on my football. I'm enjoying playing up front, I love my job.

"It's very enjoyable at the moment and I'll let the rumours take care of themselves."

However, Liverpool legend Phil Thompson believes Long's goal-return is not good enough for the Tipperary man to play at Anfield. "Shane Long has had really good spells this year but I think he's inconsistent as a goalscorer," the TV pundit said.
