The ‘is he, isn’t he, Micky Adams to Gillingham rumourmill’ took another twist after Gillingham Chairman Paul Scally labelled Port Vale’s claim of an approach from the Kent club as “complete rubbish.”
Earlier in the day, a tweet from the official PVFC Twitter account (an account known to be used by the football club) tweeted that: “Port Vale have refused permission for Gillingham to speak to the club’s manager Micky Adams.”
Responding to that news, Scally told BBC Radio Kent that the claim was “complete rubbish” and refused to comment on who could be the club’s next manager.
Sky Bet now have Micky Adams as the favourite to land the Gills post with his odds now at 2/1 favourite for the move to Kent.
But a bullish Adams denied any interest in the position last week, telling the Sentinel that: “I totally refute the idea I am interested in the Gillingham job.”
