Moyes explains Scotland job U-turn

David Moyes has confirmed that he is no longer interested in the Scotland job.

The West Ham boss threw his hat into the ring for the job in October, but has now confirmed that he is focused solely on club management. 

Nevertheless, Moyes has not ruled out taking the reins in future, having been born and bred in Scotland.

“Everyone realises it’s not as good a job as it was when we had people like Graeme Souness and all the top players we had at the time,” he explained, the Express reports. “We have less and less of that now unfortunately.

“I would have liked to have seen Walter Smith take the job.

“I would love to get the opportunity through time. But, for the moment, I enjoy the day-to-day involvement with the players.”

Gordon Strachan left the Scotland job in October after failing to guide the country to the 2018 World Cup.

Alex McLeish is the current betting favourite to succeed him.
