Redknapp: 'Scotland job interests me'

Harry Redknapp reveals that he holds an interest in the vacant managerial job with Scotland after Gordon Strachan's departure earlier this month.

Harry Redknapp has said that the vacant managerial position with Scotland is "a great job for someone" after acknowledging his interest in the role.

Earlier this month, Gordon Strachan's spell with the Tartan Army came to an end after the nation narrowly missed out on the World Cup playoffs.

Redknapp - who was sacked as Birmingham City boss in September - has admitted that he would like to be considered as a possible replacement for Strachan, but admitted that he is unlikely to be given a chance by the Scottish Football Association.

The 70-year-old told BBC Scotland: "Of course. It must be a fantastic job to have. I think Gordon did what he could."

"I must be truthful, I watched the Scotland games and not the England games, because there was nothing on the England games. Those last two Scotland games, the win against Slovakia, the late goal, I kicked every ball that day.

"Then I thought Scotland had a chance, and then 1-0 up in the second game [against Slovenia], it would've been a real great achievement to have qualified, but I think Gordon did what he could. It's a difficult job. I wouldn't see myself having any chance of getting it, but it would be a great job for someone."

Redknapp's only experience on the international stage is a two-game spell with Jordan in March 2016.
