Saints AFL coach unfazed by speculation

Embattled St Kilda coach Alan Richardson maintains speculation about his coaching future won't distract him as he attempts to turn the Saints' dire AFL season around.

Richardson's 100-game tenure at the club was put back under the spotlight on Saturday night when Sydney led by 48 points at quarter-time before coasting to a 71-point win at Etihad Stadium.

"I don't spend one minute thinking about (my future) ... the only time I spend thinking about it is when I have to respond to questions about it," Richardson told Fox Footy on Monday night.
