Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ally McCoist has gone on to admit that he is eyeing a return to football management.

Even in their entire careers, not many managers have had to go through what Ally McCoist did during his three-year spell at the helm of his beloved Rangers between 2011 and 2014.

The 44-year-old had the thankless responsibility of managing Rangers amid the club going through liquidation and a numerous boardroom changes.

Amid all the turbulence, McCoist was placed on gardening leave back in December 2014 and one cannot blame the Scotsman for avoiding the stress of management since.

18 months on though, the wounds from his time managing at Rangers seemed to have healed and now the former Scotland striker has gone on to reveal that he is ready to make a return back to top level management once again.

In a candid interview with the Daily Mail, McCoist stated that he has already had talks with a number of Scottish Championship clubs and is now prepared to return back to the ‘madness’ of football management.

He said, “I had a couple of interviews with Championship clubs last year. I thought I had one of them but it wasn’t to be so I think the time’s right to get back in. I have missed it.

“I miss the day to day more than anything else, to tell you the truth. The training and being about people. I have enjoyed being away from the madness, of course, but I’m looking forward to getting back in.”
