Alex McLeish sacked: David Moyes could relaunch managerial career as new Scotland boss, talkSPORT told
David Moyes could relaunch his career in football management by succeeding Alex McLeish as Scotland boss.
That’s the verdict from pundit and commentator Peter Martin, who joined talkSPORT’s Scottish duo Alan Brazil and Ally McCoist to discuss the next step for the SFA.
Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke and Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes are two of the top favourites linked with succeeding Big ‘Eck.
But, Scotland legend McCoist says the next head coach should be someone who needs the job, rather than wants it.
And Martin believes Moyes would be a perfect fit to pick up the pieces after a dreadful year for the Scottish game.

Speaking on Friday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Scottish broadcaster said: “The third favourite is David Moyes, and my personal view is I would go for him.
“He is desperately hoping to get another job in the English Premier League, but I don’t think that’s forthcoming.
“The only question is, have they got enough money to satisfy him?
“This is a situation where Moyes might need the job to try and get himself in the spotlight – that’s the only saving grace.
“Quite simply, David Moyes hasn’t managed to get himself a Premier League job, so can Scotland convince him this is, for a two or three year period, is a worthwhile proposition for him?
“Because, as far as the other candidates are concerned, some of them are too young and some of them don’t want to touch it with a bargepole.”
