Video: David Moyes Pretty Much Rules Himself Out of Taking Scotland Job

David Moyes has all but ruled himself out of becoming Scotland‘s next manager, whilst admitting he’d be interested in taking the hot-seat at West Ham United, should they sack current boss Slaven Bilic.

The SFA have been searching for Gordon Strachan’s replacement since the 2-2 draw with Slovenia last month ended hopes of Scotland reaching a first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup.

At first, Moyes was installed as one of the leading contenders to replace Strachan but it seems the former Manchester United and Everton coach would much rather wait for another post in the English Premier League.

As you can see in the clip above, during an appearance on beIN Sports over the weekend, anchor Richard Keys asks Moyes where he stands on possibly taking the Scotland job, and the 54-year-old replies: “I don’t know if it’s right for me just now, and my preference would be to go into club management.

“If club management didn’t come along then maybe I’d look at it differently.

“I would really like to manage my country some day but not this time round.”

When Keys asks if we can ‘take that as a no’, Moyes simply replies: “Yeah”.

West Ham’s owners are thought to be on the brink of parting company with Bilic after the Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at home to Liverpool left the Hammers in the Premier League’s relegation zone – but is Moyes the right man to turn things around?

And have Scotland missed a trick by failing to appoint Moyes, or is it a blessing in disguise?
