Clarke is the latest name to be linked with the Stoke City vacancy.
Some Scotland fans are welcoming reports that Stoke City have made contact over the Tartan Army manager, Steve Clarke.
The Scottish Sun claims Stoke have ‘sounded out’ Clarke, the former West Bromwich Albion, Reading and Kilmarnock boss, who has not provided the Championship’s bottom club with any optimism in their efforts to prise him away from his country.
The 56-year-old has won two and lost four of his six games in charge of Scotland, having replaced Alex McLeish earlier this year.
And this is what those north of the border are saying about the speculation on Twitter…
Stoke pals, you’re welcome to Stevie Clarke. I don’t think anyone would notice. The state of Scotland team isn’t his fault but he’s done nothing to suggest he can turn it around. If you’re after organised, dull, functional, stay in the 2nd division by the skin of your…— 웃immy 웃azz (@JimmyJazzEsq) November 6, 2019

Clarke, who also had spells alongside Jose Mourinho at Chelsea and Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool, led Kilmarnock into the Europa League qualifiers last season.
But his managerial record is mixed, with West Brom and Reading having shown him the door within 18 months and a year of his arrival, respectively.
Stoke sacked Nathan Jones on Friday and are rooted to the foot of the Championship table – six points off Jones’ former club Luton, who occupy 21st place.
Stoke fans – do the Scotland supporters’ comments concern you?
