Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke admits he’d be open to managing Scotland ‘at some stage’ but has not had any contact from the SFA yet.

After Alex McLeish left his position as Scotland chief on Thursday afternoon, the SFA are on the lookout for a replacement and Clarke is among the favourites for the vacant role.

Former Reading and West Brom boss Clarke has impressed at Kilmarnock this season, guiding them to third in the Scottish Premiership with five games to go.

When asked at his press conference about the possibility of taking on the national job, Clarke admitted he could be interested but refused to completely throw his hat in the ring.

He said: ‘Yes, at some stage.

Whether it is now or not is a matter for you guys to talk about and speculate.

I am fully focused on finishing the season well here at Kilmarnock.

‘I don’t speculate, there is no point in doing that.

I know how football works.

I am fully focused on this job here.’
