Scotland job would be an honour, says Strachan

ITV pundit Gordon Strachan has admitted he is delighted with reports linking him with the Scotland manager's job, but is yet to be offered the role.

"It would be an honour to be asked," Strachan told Matt Smith when asked if he would be interested in succeeding Craig Levein. "But it would be arrogant of me to answer that if nobody's asked me."

Strachan has emerged as one of the names set to be considered by the SFA following their decision to remove Levein from his role on Monday.

Alongside the former Southampton, Coventry and Celtic boss, Owen Coyle, recently sacked by Bolton Wanderers, is also thought to be in the frame.

Earlier on Tuesday former Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish, who himself managed Scotland in 2007, threw his weight behind Strachan's candidacy.Strachan has been out of management since 2010, when he resigned from his job as manager of Middlesbrough.
