He is followed in the betting by Derek McInnes (4/1) and David Moyes (8/1).

Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman said: “At the moment it doesn’t look the most inspiring list but now is the time to be looking for another Scotland manager. I know the Bertie Vogts experiment didn’t work but I wonder if we should to consider another foreign option.”

Scotland are now out to a massive 6/1 to qualify for World Cup 2018 in Russia.
