Scottish Premier League side St Mirren have responded to media speculation linking a number of high-profile candidates to their vacant head coaching role.
The newly promoted SPL side saw their manager Ross poached by Sunderland last month after he led them to the Scottish second-tier title.
McCarthy, Kluivert and Guti emerged as front-runners for the position, but the club's chairman Gordon Scott has quickly dampened the likelihood of any of their arrival at the Paisley 2021 Stadium.
"I wouldn't rule them out completely but I think it's unlikely," Scott told Sky Sports News. "It's pleasing to see high-profile names linked.
"It shows how attractive this job is but it also shows how attractive Scottish football is right now.
"Anybody who comes in needs to know Scottish football. It's different for sides like Celtic and Rangers who can bring in players from all over the world, but we need to focus on the Scottish market and the English market to a degree."
