01 Dec McCall ‘desperate’ to get back into management
Former Rangers boss Stuart McCall says he has the hunger and desire to get back into football management after a stint away from the dugout.
McCall, who is part of Gordon Strachan’s backroom staff with Scotland, has been without a club since leaving Rangers in the summer after their promotion attempt was scuppered in the play-offs against his former side Motherwell.
Helping out with the draw for the Scottish Cup fourth round, he says he feels ready to go back to into management.
“I’ve been watching a lot of football over the last 10 days I’ve been down to England and watched games up here and I’ve got the hunger, enthusiasm and fire back now.
“I’m desperate to join a football club, I’m desperate to start pitting my wits and winning football games, but I’m not going to get to the stage where you get too choosey.
“I don’t think there are that many perfect jobs out there anymore whereas [before] chairman will give you two or three years to build a football club that’s never going to happen. That’s why can’t be too choosey.”
McCall hinted that it was more likely to be a job in England he was after but would it mean having to give up the role as Scotland coach?
“It would have to be something that comes into consideration and it has come into consideration in the past 12 months if I’m honest,” he said.
“I probably could have gone into work elsewhere, but I would have had to give up the Scotland job.
“I was hoping that we would be in the Euros, but that’s not happened. We just have to sit and see which club it is.”
