Former striker Joe Jordan is pleased to be mentioned as a possible Scotland manager as the search for Craig Levein's successor begins.

Nearly three weeks since the defeat to Belgium left Scotland bottom of their World Cup qualifying group with two points, the Scottish Football Association announced on Monday that Levein was no longer in charge. Jordan, who served as first-team coach at Tottenham under Harry Redknapp, has welcomed reports linking him with the Scotland job.

"I know there will be a lot of names, a lot of speculation," Jordan, who has managed Hearts, Stoke and Bristol City, told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I am Scottish, I'm a proud Scotsman and a person that wants to work. And, for my name to be mentioned, yes, it's nice to be linked with the national job."
