O'Neil Turns Down Scotland Job (22 Jan 2018)

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neil has decided not to take the Scotland job, and succeed Gordon Strachan.

This leaves Scotland with a tough decision as to who should be next on their list, after they appeared to put all of their eggs in one basket. The top choices are former boss Alex McLeish, who has expressed an interest in taking charge for a second time. There is also the possibility of Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes, who has already turned down Sunderland and Rangers. Malky Mackay, who took charge for the Holland friendly could be an option, but he has already been ruled out. Steve Clarke who is currently doing well at Kilmarnock, is also an option as he has much experience coaching at the top level.
