Scotland Coach – Burley, Souness, McGhee or Burns?

It seems like the SFA have got their finger out in the search for a new Scotland coach. Amid news that Billy Davies has withdrawn his interest in the job, reports state that there is a shortlist of four for the job George Burley, Graeme Souness, Mark McGhee and Tommy Burns.

Mark McGhee has been, and remains, favourite. Backers include Rangers captain Barry Ferguson and Scotland pundit Chick Young. However Coventry boss Gary McAllister has suggested ex-Scotland midfielder, Graeme Souness would be ideal for the position. More recently however George Burley and Tommy Burns have surfaced as possible candidates.

Burley expressed his interest weeks ago. Only now thought has there been any sign that he was being lined up as a possible candidate. And Burns was considered unlikely having been passed over when the SFA were replacing Walter Smith. Despite this the SFA are seeking to interview both coaches in addition to Souness and McGhee.

My thoughts remain, Souness or McGhee, preferably the latter.
