Sven-Goran Eriksson has emerged as a shock potential candidate for the Scotland job.
According to reports, the former England boss has contacted the SFA to make them aware of his availability and keenness to take on the role.
His last management job was as head coach of the Philippines national team, who played in their debut Asian Cup during his tenure, losing all three games.
Eriksson’s career has seen him take on a number of high-earning positions across the globe having managed England from 2001 to 2006.
His reign with the Three Lions was mainly a success, but he failed to take them beyond the quarter-finals in three tournaments and eventually fell victim to a ‘fake sheikh’ sting by the News of the World.
He left the job at the end of the 2006 World Cup.
The SFA are currently looking at a number of candidates to replace Alex McLeish, who was sacked last week.
Among those linked are Kilmarnock’s Steve Clarke, Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes and Sunderland’s Jack Ross.
Scotland Under-21 manager Scot Gemmill is also understood to be in consideration, while ex-Croatia boss Slaven Bilić has also been rumoured to have thrown his hat into the ring.
