Stuart McCall 'fired up' for return to club football

Interview - Stuart McCall

Stuart McCall says he has the "enthusiasm, hunger and fire back" to return to club management.

McCall, who is part of Gordon Strachan's Scotland backroom staff, guided Rangers to the play-offs last season but missed out on promotion.

"I've got nothing in the pipeline as such, as all managers will say," said the 51-year-old.

"I want to get back on the training ground. I've seen enough football and done enough media."

McCall was at Hampden on Tuesday afternoon to conduct the draw for the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

Responding to questions about his future, McCall said he was itching for a return to the dugout.

"My main focus was on the Scottish national side and obviously we're not going to the Euro 2016 finals now.

"But I was to say that, probably in the last week to 10 days, I've watched a lot of football. I've been down to England and watched games up here.

"Let's get those shorts back on!"

"I've got the enthusiasm, hunger and fire back. I'm desperate to go into a club where I think I can improve it and get back to what I do best and be on the football pitch."

McCall, who has been part of the Scotland coaching team since early 2013, was at Motherwell for almost four years.

The former Rangers midfielder said he did not like attending games where the current manager was under pressure.

"I know people that do that and it's not right," he added.

"Whatever club you go into, nowadays with all the scouting and DVDs, you can always catch up with games.

"It's got to the stage now where I want to get back on the training ground. I've seen enough football and done enough media.

"I want to be out on the training ground, even though it's probably the worst time to do it in winter. Let's get those shorts back on!"
