Scott McGleish has declared an interest in taking on the role of Bristol Rovers manager following the dismissal of Paul Buckle.

The veteran striker, who netted the winner in the 2-1 victory at Hereford in midweek, wants to take over at the West County club after Buckle left on January 3.

The 37-year-old admits he has put an application - not that he is expecting it to be successful.

He told the Bristol Evening Post: "I asked my agent to put my name forward on the list of applicants, although I haven't heard anything from the club.

"But looking at the names that have been linked with the job so far, it seems to be all about experienced managers. If that's the case, then it's definitely going to make me an outsider.

"I certainly don't expect the job, but if there was any room for me in the managerial set-up then I'd be more than happy to do it."
