AC Milan legend Gattuso applies for Hamilton job

AC Milan legend Rino Gattuso wants to continue his coaching career in Scotland.

After leaving OFI Crete over Christmas, Gattuso is keen to jump back into football and has applied for the Hamilton Academicals job.

The 37-year-old has endured a turbulent managerial career to date, spending three months as player-coach of Swiss side FC Sion and being sacked after six Serie B games in charge of Palermo.

The Daily Mail says Gattuso is one of more than 50 applicants to replace Alex Neil - despite the position not yet being advertised.

Gattuso's wife is from Glasgow and a move back to Scotland has long carried emotional appeal for the ex-midfielder, who has spoken in the past of his desire to manage Rangers.
