Former Aston Villa boss McLeish becomes new Scotland manager

Alex McLeish has retuned to the Scotland helm.

The former Rangers and Aston Villa manager will be unveiled as Scotland manager on Friday after agreeing on a deal up until 2020.

McLeish last took charge of his country in 2007, but stayed in the post for less than a year after failing to qualify for Euro 2008.

Scotland were forced to move on from number one target, Michael O'Neill, after he decided to extend his job with Northern Ireland.

The role became available after Gordon Strachan left in October after missing out on qualification for the 2018 World Cup.
