St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott has played down speculation the newly promoted Scottish Premier League side could appoint Patrick Kluivert or Guti as its next manager.
The Buddies have been on the search for Jack Ross' replacement since May, when the 41-year-old joined League One outfit Sunderland.
A host of names have been linked with the role, including Champions League winners Kluivert and Guti – who was also said to be in the running for the vacant Real Madrid position.
However, the Scott says that the duo are unlikely to be considered despite their high-profile playing careers at some of the top clubs across Europe.
"I wouldn't rule them out completely but I think it's unlikely. It's pleasing to see high-profile names linked. It shows how attractive this job is, but it also shows how attractive Scottish football is right now," Scott told Sky Sports News .
"Anybody who comes in needs to know Scottish football. It's different for sides like Celtic and Rangers who can bring in players from all over the world, but we need to focus on the Scottish market and the English market to a degree."
