Stuart McCall believes there are strong Scottish candidates available for the Scotland job following the departure of Gordon Strachan.
The Bradford City boss, 53, singles out David Moyes and Paul Lambert as professional managers who would “hopefully” have an interest within the job.
McCall previously worked alongside Strachan as Scotland didn’t qualify for Euro 2016.
“I would like it to be a Scotsman,” McCall knowledgeable BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I believe a couple of years previously when Gordon signed his contract, there wasn’t that many imaginable alternatives out there.
“I believe now if you take a look at, for example David Moyes and Paul Lambert, we have now got two Scottish managers with experience who’re out of the game at the minute and hopefully, most likely, would really like the chance to take over the country.
“Now, Sam Allardyce is one that would be put in and you would have a think about it, but certainly I think it’s someone who needs to know the British game, needs to know the players, needs to see them on a regular basis and then when they get in there, get the best out of the squad.”
Having worked as an assistant instructor with Scotland from 2013-16, McCall believes success on the global degree can once in a while go proper all the way down to “a bit of luck”.
“There’s no doubt about it, the staff and the players were fully behind him,” McCall said of Strachan.
“He’s a real truthful guy with great integrity, great knowledge and the players favored turning up each and every time a Scotland global came visiting.
“There has been a big turnaround in this season, or for positive throughout the last 12 months, Scotland have gone unbeaten alternatively over again it’s every other advertising marketing campaign that actually, for me, comes down to at least one poor potency or poor outcome – at area to Lithuania [drawing 1-1 in 2016].
“In the Euros we got knocked out by way of a poor potency in Georgia, and one poor potency at area to Lithuania, for me, scuppered his probabilities.
“Even throughout the last game there, the last two video video games, Scotland were most certainly without one of the crucial two influential players of recent video video games in Armstrong and Brown.
“You look at Wales, they were missing Bale, they managed to miss out. Sometimes it’s such small margins, but you know getting the right manager in place who the players want to play for is obviously going to be huge.”
And, with the post vacant yet again, former Scotland midfielder McCall insists he’s happy in his provide role.
“You never don’t take a phone call that’s for sure, but I’m at a club that means a lot to me and I’m really enjoying my work at Bradford and we’ve got a big task ahead of us this season but no I think there’s far stronger candidates out there,” he added.
