ALEX MCLEISH will take his time to consider his next managerial move after turning down offers from England and abroad since leaving his position as Scotland boss earlier this year.

The 60-year-old was sacked by the Scottish FA in April following a poor start to the European Championship qualifiers and the shock 3-0 loss to Kazakhstan.

McLeish was replaced by Steve Clarke as national boss and is content to bide his time before deciding what the future holds.

McLeish said: “I’m having a break. I’ve had two or three approaches from different countries and continents - and from England as well. But I’m just taking a break, I’m not committing myself to anything just now.”

McLeish was back in the dugout on Saturday as he led a Rangers Legends side in a charity match.

The Gers went down 3-2 to Liverpool at Ibrox but Big Eck was pleased to be in familiar surroundings once again.

McLeish said: “It was great, I’ve got some marvellous memories from here. Obviously it wasn’t always plain sailing because it is a very demanding job. But the success we had here was pretty phenomenal back in the day, when I think of what we did.

“There are memories that will live with me forever and the Legends game was brilliant.

“We got a marvellous reception from the fans and it was wonderful to be back in the dressing room with some Rangers legends, many who I’ve worked with in the past.”
