Managerless Aston Villa’s relegation fate has all but been sealed.
With the club 12 points from safety and just seven games remaining this season it appears it’s a job that no manager in their right mind would be willing to take.
This week, Villa axed manager Remi Garde – their second managerial sacking this season after last year’s saviour Tim Sherwood was shown the exit door.
And while the relegation-threatened side look for Garde’s successor, one man who has categorically ruled himself out of the running is Scotland gaffer Gordon Strachan.
The former Celtic and Middlesbrough boss politely declined the job offer live on BT Sport this morning.
Speaking as a guest on the Fletch & Sav show, as the panel looked ahead to the return of domestic football after the international break, Ian Taylor joked about Strach filling the position.
And the Scot was quick to reply: “No! I’m fine thanks.”

Strachan failed to lead Scotland to this summer’s Euro 2016 finals in France in their latest qualification bid.
But the ex-Aberdeen icon made the decision to stay on as the Tartan Army’s national coach – and has enjoyed two 1-0 friendly wins over the Czech Republic and Denmark in his first games since.
Strachan also notably brought wholesale changes to his squads for both of the recent friendlies, which included handing first caps to Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney, Aberdeen defender Kenny McLean and Hibs midfielder John McGinn.
