Following Craig Levein's sacking on 5 November, Coyle has emerged as one of a number of candidates for the role.

"There is no doubt that the Scotland job is a terrific job for the right candidate," said the 46-year-old, who remains unemployed after leaving Bolton last month.

"If the SFA felt I was one of those candidates and wanted to speak, then of course I'm happy to listen and see what people think - how they want to progress and what they think of yourself and what you can bring to that job.

"I've worked as hard as a manager as I did as a player and maximised everything I had. Whatever I enter into, I go in giving everything.

"If people felt you were worth speaking to about their club or national job or whatever it is, then I would be flattered if that came to be."

"What I would say, and I've got to give balance to it, is that I think Scotland are very fortunate that they do have many outstanding candidates capable of ultimately qualifying for major competitions."

Former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan remains the bookmakers' favourite with Coyle joint second best alongside Billy Stark and Joe Jordan.
