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 told Sky Sports News: "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: "I don't know, I'm not in the club but obviously over the years (it has been) a really well run club, (who) play the right way and are an established Premier League team.

The former United man is currently keeping himself busy by running non-league side Salford City, along with Gary & Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes.
