Former Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock has ruled out a return to management over two years after leaving his last managerial role.

The 61-year-old was last in charge of Sky Bet League Two club Yeovil Town but was sacked in December 2015 after winning just 20% of his matches as manager of The Glovers.

Sturrock was recently appointed the assistant manager of Scottish Championship club Dundee United with The Arabs boss Csaba Laszlo having struggled to produce results since his appointment into the role in November. Sturrock had previously been scouting for the club in the English leagues.

A return to the dugout to assist Laszlo has raised questions over whether Sturrock will eventually return to management, however the Daily Record has reported that the Scot has no desire to become a manager again despite winning promotions with three English Football League clubs.

Sturrock’s most successful spell in management arguably came with Plymouth Argyle who he helped to promotion from the fourth tier of the English game to the second tier. During two spells at Home Park, he won 113 matches and was crowned Manager of the Year on two occasions.

In between his stints with Argyle, Sturrock guided both Sheffield Wednesday and Swindon Town to promotions. His success with the latter remains his last notable achievement as a manager with that promotion coming over a decade ago.
