McLeish set to be named as new Scotland coach

Wey! It looks like the SFA are about to appoint a new Scotland Coach this coming Monday (Jan 29). Having been away in opposition territory for a few days (skiing in France) I’m glad to see that the Scotland squad will soon have a new coach. And, if I go back to France this year it will hopefully be to see Scotland repeat their defeat of the French. What a result that would be!

Present thoughts are that former Rangers manager Alex McLeish will become Scotland coach. As well as being interviewed for the position, McLeish has received the backing of Manchester United and ex-Scotland boss, Sir Alex Ferguson. When asked about Mcleish Ferguson said “I think he’s ideal, I think it’s perfect.”

Andy Watson, who was McLeish’s assistant at Motherwell, Hibernian and Ibrox, is considered likely to be part of the new set-up. Similarly, Gary McAllister and Roy Aitken have also been mentioned as possible members of the new Scotland management team.
