Wolves' Jackie McNamara has played down talk of a summer move to Scotland.
Jackie McNamara insists staying at Wolverhampton Wanderers remains his top priority despite persistent talk of a possible return to Scotland.
McNamara's current contract expires at the end of the season and he has been linked with Hibernian as well as with a possible player/coach role at Livingston.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will not discuss contract extensions until the season has drawn to a close and McNamara is happy to wait before talking with the play-off hopefuls.
Moreover, the former Celtic man admits he has heard nothing from Livingston chairman Pearse Flynn regarding a possible role alongside Craig Brewster.
"I will wait until we see if we get into the play-offs and hopefully get up to the Premiership and sit down and speak to them (Wolves) then," said McNamara.
"To be honest I didn't know anything about that [Livingston] until someone told me it was in the papers.
"I think further down the line, that's something I possibly will go into but just now I'm concentrating on playing for Wolves."
McNamara has also played down talk of a possible switch to Hibernian, where his father, also named Jackie, once played.
"I think that's about the only thing - the family tie," McNamara insisted.
"You are going to be linked with different things because of that.
"But I haven't spoken to anyone there and I haven't any intention of doing so until I know what is happening down the road."
