SCOTTISH Premier League winner Alan Thompson is keen for a crack at management in his own right and is known to be intersted in the Hartlepool United job.

The former Pools loanee was reserve-team boss at Newcastle United before becoming assistant to Neil Lennon at Celtic.

That relationship broke down during the summer and Newcastle-based Thompson left Glasgow.

But he is thought to be interested in a managerial role.
