Ex-Rangers Boss Dick Advocaat Would ‘Definitely’ Take Scotland Job If Offered

Ex-Rangers Boss Dick Advocaat Would ‘Definitely’ Take Scotland Job If Offered

Ex-Rangers boss Dick Advocaat has said he’d ‘definitely’ take the Scotland job if he was offered the role.

The SFA hierarchy are currently looking for Alex McLeish’s replacement and former Netherlands coach Advocaat has been linked with the role in various tabloids over the last few weeks or so.

And it seems Advocaat – who turns 72 later this year – is keen for talks over the position, despite still being in charge at FC Utrecht in his Dutch homeland.

Whilst appearing as a guest earlier this week on a Dutch TV show, via the Sun, he was introduced by the presenter as ‘the new manager of Scotland’, which prompted him to respond: “No, that’s not right yet.

“My name has been mentioned for the job, but nothing more so far. Whether it’s going to happen, I don’t know.

“But one thing is certain, if I am approached I would definitely say yes.”

Of course, Advocaat wrote himself into Rangers folklore by winning a domestic treble in the 1998/1999 season, and was responsible for splashing the cash on various big-name signings, including Giovanni van Bronkhorst and Tore Andre Flo.

But would he be the right choice to take on Scotland at this time? Of course, there’s absolutely no questioning his experience and skills, but would a younger, more up-and-coming coach perhaps be a better option?

What do you think?
