Everton boss Moyes admits Scotland ambition

Everton boss David Moyes has admitted he would one day like to manage Scotland - but when he is "a little bit older and experienced".

Following Alex McLeish's move from national coach to the hot-seat at Birmingham, Moyes has been an outsider for the post on many bookmakers' lists. He said: "One day I would like to manage Scotland, but not at the moment. I would want to be a little bit older and experienced.

"Anyone would want to be linked with the job as national manager, I would like the national job but it is not for me just yet.

"If I do well enough at Everton, maybe there will be an opportunity in the future but certainly not for a long period of time regarding me.

"I still feel I have only just come into management, I am still one of the youngest about. But I feel the national manager's job should be for someone a bit older and nearer the end of their time in management.

"Maybe they do not always want the day-to-day involvement, but I want that at Everton."
