Speculation has been mounting over who will replace outgoing boss David Jeffrey at Windsor Park after he announced he was to step down at the end of the season.
Former Northern Ireland striker Feeney has emerged as the favourite to take over at the south Belfast club.
Feeney is currently cutting his coaching teeth as assistant manager at non-league Salisbury City in England.
The Blues board is meeting on Tuesday evening and it has been rumoured that it will recommend the 33-year-old replaces Jeffrey who is stepping down after 17 years in charge.
However, Feeney, who won 46 caps for Northern Ireland and played for Bournemouth, Stockport County, Luton Town, Oldham Athletic and Plymouth Argyle, told UTV the rumours were nothing but "pure speculation" and that he was focused on his role at Salisbury.
The early front runner for the job, Pat Fenlon, is believed to have turned down the chance to return to the club he once played for.
