The 70-year-old, who was once favourite to win the England manager’s job before it went to Roy Hodgson, is currently out of football after he was sacked by Birmingham City in September.

Scotland are on the look out for a new boss to take the team forward after failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup saw Gordon Strachan handed his jotters.

“Of course,” said Redknapp when asked whether he would be interested in the job by BBC Scotland.

“It must be a fantastic job to have. I think Gordon did what he could.

“I must be truthful, I watched the Scotland games and not the England games, because there was nothing on the England games. Those last two Scotland games, the win against Slovakia, the late goal, I kicked every ball that day.

“Then I thought Scotland had a chance, and then 1-0 up in the second game, it would’ve been a real great achievement to have qualified, but I think Gordon did what he could. It’s a difficult job.

“I wouldn’t see myself having any chance of getting it, but it would be a great job for someone.”
