Levein to be confirmed as new Scotland boss within 24 hours

Dundee United boss Craig Levein expects his future to be sorted within 24 hours. Levein held "positive discussions" with the Scottish Football Association on Monday and followed that by meeting United chairman Stephen Thompson on Tuesday morning where he indicated his wish to become national manager.

"I had a meeting last night with some members of the SFA," he told BBC Scotland on Tuesday.

"It went reasonably well. It was about an hour long. It's impossible to get everything sorted in an hour, so those talks are ongoing without me.

"Everything should be resolved on Tuesday or Wednesday morning one way or the other.

"I can tell you that I was pleased with the way the discussions went and that's important.

"It's important for me to learn just what the job entailed and what I learned from the members of the SFA was fairly encouraging.

"If I do leave Dundee United then I'm quite happy to give you my feelings from the heart about what's happened at this football club, but at this minute in time I'm still the manager, so there's no point in it."
