The former Rangers boss said: “At the moment I’m enjoying what I’m doing here [with Scotland]. But yes I do miss the day to day work, being on the coaching ground with the players.”
Whilst not directly linked to either post available in the top flight right now, McCall has not ruled out leaving his post with Scotland to take up a more day to day management role.
There have been no links to either Sunderland or Liverpool for McCall, and the question was posed at him out of curiosity, but both clubs are currently looking for a new boss.
The Liverpool job is certainly out of his reach, but the former Rangers hero could certainly contend for the role at the Stadium of Light.
The 51-year-old had good success in charge of Motherwell, and he stabilised Rangers when he took over last season, and it could be considered fairly unfortunate that he was not offered a full-time role at Ibrox - even though Matk Warburton has been excellent this season.
McCall has the attitude to sort out the squad issues at Sunderland, and he is not afraid to drop players if they step out of line. He plays a fairly attacking style of football, but his biggest strengths are at stabilising the defensive zones, and playing not to lose - meaning he picks up points consistently.
This could be the best kind of coach that Sunderland need right now, and although a left-field name to consider for the job, McCall is certainly a candidate who would be a wise choice to name Black Cats’ boss for the remainder of the season.
