Walter Smith not in running for Scotland manager's job
Last Updated: 09/02/18 11:02pm
Walter Smith is no longer a contender for the vacant Scotland manager's job, Sky Sports News understands.
The SFA have yet to interview or offer the job to anyone since Stewart Regan left his role as chief executive last week.
It was reported Smith was being considered to replace Gordon Strachan, with U21 boss Scot Gemmill lined up to work as his number two and potential successor.
The Scottish FA board are due to meet next week to discuss the way forward for the national team, with the list of options to succeed Strachan said to be "strong and long", according to sources.
Gemmill is understood to still be in the running, along with former manager Alex McLeish and SFA performance director Malky Mackay, among others.
Sky Sports News understands the SFA board are still intent on finding a new manager in time for the March friendlies with Costa Rica and Hungary, and that a new CEO may not be appointed until afterwards (due to the length of time normally taken for chief executive officers currently in jobs to move roles).
