Parish to consult Coppell
Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish says he will "take the counsel" of former manager Steve Coppell before naming the club's new boss.
Dougie Freedman left the Eagles on Tuesday and has been named as the new manager of Championship rivals Bolton.
Parish is now looking for a new man to take the helm - and keep the Eagles in play-off contention.
And Coppell, currently the director of football at Crawley, could come into contention.
Parish told BBC London 94.9: "He's always someone we would consider. But the situation has to be right for Steve and he would have to want to do it. But I'm sure we'll be taking his counsel at the very least."
Coppell spent a total of nine years in charge of Palace between 1984 and 1993, having four separate spells at Selhurst Park.
