Scotland boss Burley against Great Britain Olympic team

Burley, speaking at the opening of Falkirk's new football centre based at Stirling University said, "It's been black and white from day one with the SFA.

"The national team comes first and at the moment we are keen to keep our nationality intact.

"We have to have a national Scottish team and we can't put that in jeopardy so there has been no change."

Burley is also opposed to the idea of a home international competition with the champions representing Britain at the London Games.

He said: "That's all hypothetical.

"The problem with international games is getting dates for them so it doesn't even come into the equation."
