John Collins and Jimmy Calderwood interested in Scotland job

Jimmy Calderwood - Future Scotland Coach?

Two potential candidates have already expressed interest in the Scotland manager job just vacated by George Burley.

As reported by the BBC, John Collins and Jimmy Calderwood are both keen to be considered. Former Aberdeen and Dunfermline coach, Calderwood said on Radio Scotland “Any Scottish manager would see it as a wonderful challenge”. Similarly, ex-Scotland midfielder, Collins declared his intentions saying “I would be interested in managing the national team”.

Other names suggested include Joe Jordan, Gary McAllister and favourite Craig Levein.

Of those suggested, I would prefer Calderwood or Jordan. Scotland need someone who can spur them on and fire them up for victory. As much as Levien is favoured by many, I don’t see him as being sufficiently passionate or ‘ball-breaking’ for this task. Jordan and Claderwood, however, strike me a strong coaches who will inspire the team while not taking any nonsenseĀ  from anyone.
