Stan Collymore says he's keen on the Nottingham Forest job.
Former Liverpool striker Collymore, 40, who scored 45 goals in 76 games for Forest between 1993-95, would love to see Martin O'Neill take up the reins at the club where he won the European Cup twice as a player.
Yet he suspects O'Neill, out of work since he quit Villa at the start of last season, wants to make his return with a Premier League side.
"I don't think Forest are going to push the boat out enough to make Martin feel it's worthwhile.
"At 40 years of age, I believe, without a doubt, I've got plenty to offer the game.
"That currently is in broadcasting but do I have the ability to be a manager? Damn right I do!
"I'd be a very good manager. Why? Because I've gone through the ups and downs of being a very high-profile player. I've made mistakes but the notion you have to be a whiter-than-white character to manage a club is nonsense.
"I have no idea if Forest will approach me or ask me to apply for the job. But I've always said there are three clubs I would do anything to help - in any way, shape or form. They are Southend, Villa and Forest."
