Who’s next Leading contenders for the role
David Moyes (54)
Former Celtic player produced solid results on limited resources as Everton manager, was overwhelmed by the Manchester United job and could not revive Sunderland’s fortunes.
Malky Mackay (45)
Another former Celtic man, he took Cardiff City into the Premier League, but was sacked. Was unimpressive at Wigan before becoming the SFA performance director in 2016.
Michael O’neill (48)
A midfielder with Dundee United and Hibernian in the 1990s, he has performed wonders as Northern Ireland manager with a limited squad, taking them to the finals of Euro 2016.
Sam Allardyce (62)
His managerial pedigree is impressive and would outweigh any reservations over employing a former England manager. But the wages he earned and the salary Scotland could offer are miles apart.
Paul Lambert (48)
Played almost 200 times for Celtic. High point as a manager came when he guided Norwich to promotion to the Premier League, but failed to work his magic at Aston Villa, Blackburn and Wolves.
