It was later claimed a member of Oxford’s backroom staff had to receive hospital treatment after falling and banging his head.

Elsewhere, former Preston North End and Norwich City boss Alex Neil has refused to rule himself out of the running to become the next Sunderland manager.

Speaking to Sky Sports last weekend, he said: "I am not quite sure. They are going through their process.

"Your name gets banded about with a lot of jobs from time to time. Things should become clearer over the next few days."

Roy Keane remains favourite for the job.
