Craig Levein has lost his job as manager of the Scotland national team.
The 48-year olds tenure had been in doubt since the team's poor start to 2014 World Cup qualifying and he has now met his demise with Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam confirming the news on Twitter.
"On my way back from training to hear Craig Levein has gone. Unbelievable. Can't believe the Scottish papers got what they wanted," Adam tweeted.
Levein, who took charge of Scotland in December 2009, had the side sitting at the bottom of the Group A qualifying table with just two points from four matches.
