Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has distanced himself from the vacant manager's position at Crystal Palace.

Speculation has linked the former Manchester City striker with the Eagles post with the bookies giving odds of 12-1 behind Mike Appleton, Karl Robinson, Ian Holloway and Steve Coppell.

However, Rosler, who has been in charge at Griffin Park since June 2011, said: "This is the first I have heard about me being linked with the job.

"All I can say is that I have had no contact from Crystal Palace and I am focused entirely on our FA Cup game this weekend."

He added: "I am very happy here at Brentford and I want us to progress in the FA Cup."

Brentford travel to Boreham Wood of the Blue Square South this weekend in the first round proper.
