Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Swansea manager's job.

Giggs has been linked with the role along with Ronald Koeman, Tony Pulis and Louis van Gaal, after the Premier League's bottom club sacked Paul Clement.

With the Swans looking for a third boss in less than 12 months, Giggs was asked if he was interested in managing a club he was linked with before Bob Bradley was appointed in October 2016.

In a succinct reply, Giggs: "No. I've spoken to them before, last time before they appointed Bob Bradley."

Asked why things had gone wrong at Swansea, Giggs speculated that the sales of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente in the summer had weakened the squad. He said: "They lost good players, didn't they? They lost Sigurdsson, they lost Llorente, and probably never replaced them. That's always a problem."
