Levein Sacked As Scotland Manager

Craig Levein has been sacked as manager of Scotland after a disastrous start to World Cup qualification.

The Scottish Football Association board delivered their verdict on his near-three-year tenure this evening after protracted deliberations.

Scotland Under-21 coach Billy Stark will take temporary charge of the team with his first task to name a squad for next Wednesday's friendly in Luxembourg.

The speculation has already begun as to who will replace him, with Gordon Strachan and Walter Smith the front runners.
