The 47-year-old former Robins defender has been on the look out for a new job after departing Torquay and having played almost 200 times for the Robins between 1986 and 1996 he believes he knows what it takes to replace Kevin MacDonald who left the club by mutual consent on Saturday.

"I'm an out-of-work manager that's obviously got Swindon connections from a long time ago, so there would be an interest on my part if they were interested in Martin Ling," he told the Swindon Advertiser.

"There's no one there who's connected with me in any way, shape or form - I just feel that my CV as a football manager would be a perfect fit for a club like Swindon.

"I will declare an interest in the role but I'll be one of an awful lot of people. With the way the situation has come about it wouldn't surprise me if the role was already gone, but I'm not sure how true that is."
