Gordon Strachan
GETTY Mc Leish replaces Gordon Strachan

Walter Smith emerged as the new favourite for the job after Michael O'Neill held talks with the SFA but ultimately chose to remain as Northern Ireland manager.

According to the Daily Record's Keith Jackson, McLeish is "on the brink" of replacing Gordon Strachan as Scotland boss - a decade after leaving the job to take over at Birmingham City.

The Scottish FA's refusal to extend Strachan's contract beyond the end of a failed World Cup qualifying campaign led to a strong pursuit of Michael O'Neill, which ultimately fell short as he opted to remain with Northern Ireland.

McLeish, who made 77 appearances for his country as a player, has also managed Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Belgian side Genk and Egyptian club Zamalek.
