Aston Villa´s billionaire chairman Randy Lerner would not stand in Martin O´Neill´s way if he was offered the job of England manager in the future.

O´Neill was in the reckoning for the post before McClaren was appointed last year and has again been tipped for the job should the former Middlesbrough boss be axed.

McClaren´s position is under scrutiny with England in danger of failing to qualify for Euro 2008, and Lerner said: "I would not stand in his way. I don´t know if I necessarily have any great insight on that subject. That would be between Martin and the FA."
