angers legend Ally McCoist has admitted that he’d be open to replacing Steve Clarke as Kilmarnock manager  and insists the Rugby Park role would be a “wonderful job.”
Clarke is widely expected to leave Rugby Park this summer and take the Scotland job and McCoist fancies the chance to return to his old club.

The Ibrox icon ended his playing career at Rugby Park before going into coaching – but knows the Killie board ad fans may not want him back.
“It’s one of the very few clubs in Scotland that I would contemplate taking the manager’s job,” McCoist said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“They might not be interested and the fans might not want it but it’s certainly a thing I’d certainly have to think about.
“The club is in Europe. The foundations have been laid to take Kilmarnock to the next step and it’s a wonderful job for someone.”
Killie ended the season in third place in the Scottish Premiership after yesterday’s win over Rangers to book their place in Europe for the first time in almost 20 years.

With Clarke looking almost certain to take charge at Hampden in the coming days, it’ll kick off the managerial merry-go-round for the summer.
After the way things ended for McCoist during his spell as Rangers manager it’s a surprise to see him consider returning to the dugout – even if it is unlikely to actually happen.
