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:
"Any Scotsman in their right mind would want to manage the Scottish team" ???????
Ally McCoist might not be among the contenders for the Scotland job, but it's brilliant hearing someone speaking so passionately about it!

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!
