Ina glowing testament to how popular the Scotland job is, every possible candidate is without a job after being punted in the last year.
The bookies favourite is Gordon Strachan who was relieved of his managerial position with Middlesborough after a fairly disastrous term. A genuine playing legend (thanks mainly to his goal versus West Germany in 1986 and the following goal celebration) he has had a mixed managerial career.
Although successful in Scotland with Celtic (3 league titles and 2 last 16 Champions League berths) Strachan had difficult spells at Southampton and Coventry City.
He is the popular choice with fans and journalists alike but may find it difficult to liaise with the hopeless Scottish Football Association.
