John Collins is interested in SFA role

JOHN Collins would be interested in becoming national performance director at the Scottish Football Association.

The role is a key recommendation made in the first part of former First Minister Henry McLeish's Scottish Football Review, commissioned by the SFA in a bid to rejuvenate the game in Scotland. The performance director will oversee talent development and former Hibernian manager Collins said: "If they (SFA) wanted to talk to me, I would be more than happy to talk to them about that role."

Collins has strong views as to why Scotland have not qualified for the finals of a major tournament since the 1998 World Cup in France.
