Brian Laws hopes his reputation has not been damaged by his recent sacking at Scunthorpe.
The 52-year-old was dismissed at Glanford Park last month following an FA Cup defeat to Grimsby.
However, given the Iron were only two points off the play-offs and five behind the top three at the time of his exit, Laws described the sacking as "unwarranted".
And he is keen to get back in the dugout as soon as possible.
"I'd like to think my stock is still high," he told Press Association Sport.
"I went in there to do a job to build the club back up again, it was a mess when I went in and I certainly left them in better shape, so I did everything that was asked of me, so I'm obviously very disappointed.
"People ask me why I want to be in football and it's because I love it, so I have got to take the rough with the smooth.
"Sometimes it's not nice, particularly when you don't deserve it, but I know in my heart that I have done everything I could for that football club, unfortunately someone else didn't see it.
"I am keen to get back in like everyone else and that's what I'll be trying to do."
