The former Ibrox player and manager revealed producers want him to take to the high seas for a reality show that would see McCoist and other celebs spending a week on a fishing boat learning the trade.

He said: “I think it would be great if it was only for a day but they want me to go away on this fishing boat for a week.

“I enjoy my fishing but I’m not sure I could go away on a boat for six or seven days.

“I mean that’s serious graft and it’s dangerous. I haven’t said yes yet. I think maybe five or six years ago I would have been right up for it but I don’t know if I fancy those waves crashing in at four in the morning.”
