Video: Ally McCoist Contemplates Scotland Job as “Any Scotsman in Their Right Mind” Would

Ex-Rangers manager Ally McCoist says if the SFA wanted to talk to him about becoming the new Scotland manager, he would be happy to listen, claiming any Scotsman would be honoured to take the job.

McCoist is at East End Park tonight as Dunfermline take on Championship leaders St Mirren on BT Sport, and addressed talk of him succeeding Gordon Strachan after being pressed by fellow pundit Chris Sutton.

The 55-year-old has been out of work since his contract with the Light Blues was terminated in September 2015, after having lead the club to back-to-back promotions from the Scottish Third Division.

And while McCoist may not be among the front-runners for the vacant position, it’s definitely refreshing to hear someone speak so passionately about the job after Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill snubbed the SFA:

 

With Stewart Regan receiving plenty of abuse for seemingly having no back-up option to O’Neill, would McCoist represent a decent appointment by the SFA at this stage?

Or are better candidates still available?

Let us know your thoughts!
