The former Hoops centre-half insisted he has far too much respect for the Norwegian – and still has a lot to achieve with the Easter Road outfit in the closing weeks of the season.
Asked about the Parkhead links, Stubbs said: “I don’t think it’s a relevant question to be asking right now. I’m more inclined to answer it by saying I’m just really sorry for Ronny.
“He seems a really good guy, I have spoken to him on a few occasions. I’m disappointed for him more than anything and that is all I will say on the matter because you have to show a bit of respect.
“I have a lot of things to think about between now and May 24 that are going to keep me occupied.”
Stubbs’ side kept alive their hopes of finishing second in the Championship with a 3-2 victory over “Rangers” in Edinburgh last night.
They are now three points behind Falkirk with a game in hand. Hibs, with the possibility of Celtic loans stars Anthony Stokes and Liam Henderson playing, will also face “Rangers” in the Scottish Cup Final on May 21, with the winners HOPING to be allowed to participate in next season’s Europa League.
