Allardyce not interested in taking over as Scotland boss

Sam Allardyce has admitted that he is not currently interested in taking the Scotland job despite having heritage from the country.

Gordon Strachan resigned as Scotland boss as they finished third in Group F in qualifying, behind Slovakia and England.

Allardyce has confirmed that he won’t be taking another job at international level for the time being after he was sacked following one game as England boss.

“It’s very tempting but not at this moment in time,” Allardyce told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“My parents are from Scotland and my sister and brother were both born in Scotland so my heritage is from there.

“At this stage I’m enjoying not being involved at the front end of football at the moment. David Moyes would probably be my choice for the Scotland job.”

The former Crystal Palace boss also revealed that he is unsure whether he will take another managerial job.

“I don’t know. You’ve always got to have someone else to want you to get a job,” he added.

“At this moment in time I would be very picky and choosy about any potential managerial jobs if I was to go back in, so that makes it very difficult.

“You never know what might come up, but if it is something where I could bring a lot of success then I could be interested.”
