Boss Derek McInnes today ruled himself out of the running for the Scotland job as he is not ready to give up club management and is committed to leading Aberdeen.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes appears to have ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Scotland manager's role, echoing statements from chairman Stewart Milne and vice-chairman Dave Cormack earlier in the week.
Chairman Stewart Milne is confident manager Derek McInnes would reject any bid from the SFA to land him as the new Scotland manager.
Dons vice-chairman Dave Cormack believes manager Derek McInnes would be keen on the Scotland job – but now is not the right time.
Scotland boss Alex McLeish has reportedly held talks with the SFA about his future.
Discussions focused on several areas aimed at fine-tuning the laws for the benefit of the game in the 2019/20 season, as well as an assessment of the use of Video Assistant Referees (VARs).
