Former Birmingham City manager Steve Cotterill is a potential candidate for the vacancy at Scunthorpe United.

The 53-year-old was sacked by Blues earlier this month after failing to steer the club away from relegation trouble.

Scunthorpe, who sacked their manager Graham Alexander this weekend, have confirmed interest in Cotterill and former England Head Coach Steve McClaren.

BBC Sports Output Editor Matt Dean this afternoon Tweeted– “Just spoken with Peter Swann (Scunthorpe Chairman). He`s confirmed interest in both Steve Cotterill and Steve McClaren as possible replacements for Graham Alexander. He says he`s yet to speak with anybody but may look at an initial short term appoint. Hasn`t ruled out movement before Fri’.

Cotterill has experienced success in the lower echelons of English football with four promotions to his name during his time at Cheltenham Town, Bristol City and Notts County respectively.

The Iron have slipped down the fifth in League One after eight winless games but remain firmly in the play-off picture.
