Leeds boss plays down Crowe links.

LEEDS head coach Neil Redfearn said speculation linking actor Russell Crowe with a possible investment in the club was "irrelevant to him and his players".

Chairman Andrew Umbers has insisted the club is not for sale in response to rumours that Leeds fan Crowe, 50, could be ready to make a bid following a series of posts on Twitter in which he asked whether it would be "a good idea".

Massimo Cellino's announcement earlier this week that he will not be returning as president on April 10 after serving his ban as club owner, in a bid to clear his name, has fuelled talk of more upheaval, but Redfearn played it down.

"To be honest with you I don't know anything about it," Redfearn said. "We've got an owner and from the previous conversations I've had with him before his suspension, he's all for what we're doing and he's here for the long run."
