The former England national team boss was thought to have been ruled out as a potential candidate to replace the sacked Ian Cathro at Tynecastle after it emerged he was ready to take a consultancy role with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

However, he’s since declined that opportunity, and could be set for a surprising U-turn should the Gorgie Road side wish to hold formal talks.

McClaren told the Scottish Sun: “I am not committed to going anywhere.

“I’m still an out of work manager looking to get back into the game.

“I’m open-minded as regards any offers that come my way.”
