Gordon Strachan's future as Scotland manager could be decided on Thursday

Gordon Strachan's future as Scotland national team manager is to be discussed on Thursday

Mackay was working as Scottish Football Association's performance director and, following Strachan's exit on Thursday, he will now oversee the friendly against the Netherlands at Pittodrie on November 9.

Ultimately we are in a result business.

SCOTLAND will jump up a massive 14 places in the FIFA World Ranking into the top 30 teams this month....just days after failing to qualify for the World Cup again.

"When the board met earlier in the year we discussed Gordon's position after the defeats to England and Slovakia".

Former Scotland defender Mackay, who also played for Celtic and Norwich, was appointed to his current role in December previous year, succeeding Brian McClair.

Regan refused to be drawn on whether Mackay would be a candidate for the permanent manager's role. As far as Malky is concerned, he will then focus on his performance responsibilities.

Regan, who will lead the recruitment campaign with as-yet-unspecified SFA board colleagues, insisted nationality was no barrier to an appointment. "We are looking for the best person for this opportunity and we will cast the net as far and wide as we have to".

"The players should receive huge credit for that resilience in coming back from a hard start and I would like to thank each and every player who has come in to represent their country".

"We backed the manager, we felt he could turn things around, but we backed him on the proviso that we made the play-offs and could get a fighting chance of making a major tournament. We want someone capable of getting to Euro 2020".
