“Watch this space,” says Steve Bruce’s son, as the ex-Newcastle boss is linked with a Manchester United job.

Steve Bruce, a Manchester United legend, has been mentioned by his son Alex as a possible short-term replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who claims the former Newcastle manager is “up for it.”

“Well, there have been a few names bandied about for if they do go down the interim route,” he said when asked about the benefits of having a well-known former player as manager.
