Mark Warburton was asked about the Sunderland job during a recent podcast appearance.

Former Rangers, QPR and Nottingham Forest boss Mark Warburton was asked if he would consider taking the Sunderland job while appearing on a podcast recently.

Mike Dodds will take charge of Sunderland's first team until the end of the season after the sacking of Michael Beale earlier this month. Dodds being handed the role of "interim" has triggered speculation regarding the Black Cats' next move in the summer, with several candidates linked.

Appearing on the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast, Warburton was asked if he’d take the Sunderland job if he were offered it but didn't commit either way, instead opting to praise the Wearsiders as a "massive" club.

“If you can’t see the potential at Sunderland, as a manager or coach… It’s a massive club. Great fan base. Anyone who gets that job right will be in for a fantastic ride," Warburton said during the podcast appearance.

Sunderland are next in action against Swansea City at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
