Scottish Football Association manager Campbell Ogilvie has hinted that the next Scotland manager may be from abroad.
The SFA are still on the hunt to replace Craig Levein, who was sacked last month, with all of the names being linked thus far those of Scotsman.
However, Ogilvie suggests that the association may look to a foreigner to lead the Scottish side whose 2-14 World Cup qualification campaign is essentially over.
"We want to bring in the best possible manager for the Scottish national team. From wherever, we want the best person for the job," said Ogilvie.
"The process is well under way and obviously it's our aim to have a new manager in place in plenty of time before the next competitive game in March against Wales.
"We have got some individuals who we believe could fill the post. I'm not going to get drawn on any details.
"All I'm going to say is we are working on the process and we will come out once we have a decision finalised."
