Former Rangers boss Walter Smith has revealed he would be willing to return to management if he was offered an attractive job outside Scotland. When Smith stepped down as Rangers chief after leading his club to the Scottish title at the end of last season, it was widely assumed that the former Everton manager would retire from the game.

But the 63-year-old, who also had a short stint as Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant at Manchester United, is adamant he has still got the appetite to manage again, as long as it is not in Scotland. Asked on Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme if he had prepared for retirement, Smith -- who spent 11 years at Rangers in two spells - said: "I never said I would retire, I said I would just be leaving Rangers.

"I wouldn't manage again in Scotland, I've managed Rangers on two occasions now and I've managed the national team. But if an opportunity came up to go to England or abroad, I would consider that."
