Former Scotland manager George Burley believes Gordon Strachan is certainly the right man for the job.
"It is a great appointment and it is a job that he will enjoy," Burley told Press Association Sport. "It doesn't get much better than being a national team manager, it is a great honour.
"He knows it will be a difficult job but I think he will adapt fine.
"The task is for Scotland to qualify for major championships but there is no magic wand.
"You can't change the players that much and you can't buy players, it is not a club job where you are working with them every day.
"It's about trying to get the best out of the players you have.
"But I think it is an excellent appointment."
