The Scotland manager Craig Levein was relieved of his duties on Monday.
It wasn’t really a shock as the Tartan Army have been performing poorly in recent months and they have all but given up hope of qualifying for the World Cup in 2014.
There was a really dearth of talent in the Scottish game a few years ago. However, in the last few years Scotland has started to see the sprouts of recovery. I really am surprised at how poor some of the team’s performances have been in recent months.
The Scottish team now has Premier League regulars throughout their team, plus promising youngsters playing the SPL. The likes of West Brom midfielder James Morrison and Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher have proven this season that they are quality players.
Scotland have also missed the presence of Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher, who has just came back until the team after a long time on the sidelines through illness.
I think that the current squad of players is the best that Scotland have had for a good while. They should be winning more games at international level. The next manager of Scotland will have a good opportunity to take the team forward.
They may not qualify for the World Cup, but Scotland has the team to win more games at international level.
There have already been a number of candidates linked with the role. The current favourite is former-Scottish international Gordon Strachan. The former-Celtic boss seems to be the popular choice amongst fans and players.
Alex McLeish has also been linked with a return to the position he formerly held. Former-Bolton boss Owen Coyle is also being linked with the job after losing his job at the Reebok Stadium.
The Scotland team has lots of potential and whoever takes the job will have a really decent squad of players to work with.
Who will be the next Scotland manager?
