Graeme Souness has declared Joe Jordan the outstanding candidate to be the next manager of Scotland’s national team, following swiftly in the wake of Alex McLeish’s recommendation that Gordon Strachan be Craig Levein’s successor.
Souness, Scottish, was adamant when asked if he was interested in the vacant position that “Joe Jordan, or someone like that” should be installed in time for this evening’s match against Luxembourg.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Kenny Dalglish urged the SFA to give Billy Davies a call, adding that he could furnish them with his phone number “in case they’ve mislain it”.
He said: “If the SFA asked me, I’d have to say, ‘No thanks, I’ve got a lot of golf booked over the next few months that I’m quite looking forward to, but much more than that it is clear to me that Billy Davies is the man to lead Scotland’s national team out of its dark age.’
“I’ve been a big fan of George Burley’s management style for many years now, and I’ve no doubt that, if called upon, Ricky Sbragia would do everyone proud.
“Heck, I could him a wee call mahsel’ – I’ve got a mobile phone. Wherever I lay my phone, that’s my home.”
He added: “I’ve got a mobile phone.”
Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Steve Clarke and Paul Lambert have all confirmed their interest in getting together down the pub to watch one of Scotland’s forthcoming World Cup qualifiers, not sure which one yet, but they’ll let each other know when they’re available and play it by ear.
Lambert said: “We should definitely do it, though.”
