Tommy Burns leaves Scotland No. 2 job

Tommy Burns has resigned from his position as Scotland’s Assistant Coach. Apparently unhappy about not being considered for the top job, Burns was not prepared to be assistant to a third successive Scotland coach.

Burns’s only comment so far is “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Scottish national squad and have made a lot of good friends in the process,… I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone involved with Scotland every success for the future.”

This is a nightmare! To leave Tommy Burns, who has put so much time and effort into Scotland, out of consideration for the top job is crazy! I wonder if the SFA are set on Alex McLeish as replacement to Walter Smith, and that they are stalling purely to give the impression they put a lot of thought into the decision.
