Asked if Bruce could compete with the league's leading managers, Robinson told Football Insider,: "I do not see why he should not have the opportunity.
"I would love to see these managers given an opportunity and a budget with the players that other so-called 'top managers' get.
"Dyche has done an outstanding job at Burnley. He never gets mentioned for top jobs because he is not fashionable – but why not?
"They know how to get results and I would love to see them given the opportunity to adapt and experiment with their managerial style."
