North­ern Ire­land’s re­mark­able era under Michael O’Neill could be near­ing its end, with Scot­land pre­par­ing to tempt the man­ager with a dou­ble-your-money of­fer to suc­ceed Gor­don Stra­chan.

O’Neill is likely to re­ceive of­fers from clubs and coun­tries fol­low­ing North­ern Ire­land’s controversial de­feat by Switzer­land in the World Cup play-offs.

The 48-year-old, who has also been linked with the va­can­cies at Sun­der­land and Rangers, in­sisted it was too early to con­tem­plate his fu­ture in the af­ter­math of Sun­day’s elim­i­na­tion in Basel.

Scot­land hope to cap­i­talise on North­ern Ire­land’s mis­ery by of­fer­ing O’Neill a four-year con­tract worth up to £1m per year with bonuses – dou­ble what he earns with the Irish Foot­ball
