Former Norwich City boss Paul Lambert could be handed a way back into the game at his first club St Mirren.
The Saints are on the look out for a manager following the departure of Jack Ross to Sunderland, after Ross guided St Mirren to the Scottish Championship title.
Lambert won the Scottish FA Cup as a teenager in 1987, where he played alongside current chief executive Tony Fiztpatrick at the Paisley club.
Sky Sports claim St Mirren have already made an approach for Lambert to lead his old club into a new era.
Lambert left Stoke City earlier this month after failing to keep the Potters in the Premier League.
The City Hall of Famer won two of his 16 games in charge, after replacing Mark Hughes. Lambert has also had spells at Aston Villa, Blackburn and Wolves since guiding Norwich to a double promotion and Premier League safety during a successful stint at Carrow Road.
Sky Sports News report Alloa manager Jim Goodwin and Livingston boss David Hopkin are also in the frame, along with former Hearts’ head coach Robbie Neilson - who left his position as MK Dons manager in January.
