Bilic rejected Scotland, open to Premier League job
Croatia boss Slaven Bilic rejected an approach from the Scottish Football Association to succeed George Burley.
Bilic, 41, has remained in charge of Croatia despite finishing below England and Ukraine in World Cup qualification and missing out on a place in South Africa, but he remains open to potential job offers.
His agent, Rudi Vata, revealed he had been willing to speak to Portsmouth before Avram Grant was named their new boss but that he was not interested in holding talks over the Scotland job. Nonetheless, clubs in the Premier League and Bundesliga are apparently still interested in his services and it appears Bilic is ready to move on.
"I recently had a request about the Scotland national team and Bilic was not interested in that at the moment," Vata told The News. "He was heavily involved with the Croatian national team in the summer and couldn't make any move.
"Now he is in a position where he can sit down and study all of the offers available. The English Premier League is one of the top leagues in Europe.
"He wants to make the right decision and he wants to make the right move. There are clubs in Germany and England who are interested in him."
