succeed George Burley as manager of Ipswich Town.

His potential to fit the bill was revealed exclusively in The Evening Star on Saturday and he said: "Obviously I'm interested."

During a highly successful era as manager of Middlesbrough, Rioch did much for the career of central defender Tony Mowbray, now the Town caretaker manager.
