Scott Brown says there is “no level that I wouldn’t speak to” as he eyes a return to management but insists there has been no approach from Queen’s Park.
The Spiders parted with head coach Robin Veldman on Saturday shortly after a 4-1 home defeat by Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Brown, 38, left Fleetwood Town in September after 16 months in charge.
“I’m starting to get itchy feet now,” said former Celtic and Scotland captain Brown.
“I’ve not got a huge ego that would prevent me from speaking to Arbroath or anybody else like that.
“There’s no level that I wouldn’t speak to. That’s not me. I’m open to anything at this moment in time. If the right thing comes up and it’s a good project or a good opportunity and someone wants to speak to me, then by all means I’ll speak to them.”
Queen’s Park are third bottom in the Scottish Championship, a point above Arbroath, who recently appointed Jim McIntyre, and two points in front of Greenock Morton.
“Being deadly honest, I’ve not spoken to Queen’s Park at all,” added Brown.
“I’ve enjoyed my time off, seeing the kids and chilling, but now I’m starting to look forward to seeing what’s out there, seeing what’s about. I’m not in any real rush at this moment in time, with the festive period coming up. I’ll start looking probably after the new year.”
