Hiddink 'out of England running'
Guus Hiddink is a vastly experienced coach
Hiddink has been widely tipped to become the new coach of Russia
Guus Hiddink appears to have ruled himself out of the running to become the next England manager.

The boss of Australia and PSV Eindhoven claims he has decided who he will manage next and has previously been tipped to become Russia coach.

"I would be lying if I was to say I do not know where my future lies - and I hate liars," Hiddink told the Sun.

The Football Association is thought to still be compiling a list of names to succeed England's Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Hiddink added: "I have already decided what I am going to do and will announce my intentions at the end of the month after this busy period for PSV."

PSV and Australia, who Hiddink will coach at the World Cup, have both hinted that they do not expect the Dutch coach to be with them next season.

Hiddink was linked to a role with the Russian national team in February, although he played down the reports at the time.

Eriksson will leave his post as England coach after the World Cup finals this summer and the FA has appointed a three-man panel to find his replacement.

Chief executive Brian Barwick was reported to have requested a meeting with Hiddink before submitting a shortlist of candidates to the FA's board.
