Clarke named new Scotland boss on three-year deal

Steve Clarke has been confirmed as Scotland’s new head coach on a three-year deal.

The 55-year-old replaces Alex McLeish after leaving Kilmarnock a day on from guiding them to third in the Scottish Premiership.

Clarke, who was voted SPFA manager of the year, takes over a Scotland side sitting fifth in their Euro 2020 qualifying group after two games.

“It is an honour,” he said.

“I firmly believe we have a talented group of players who can achieve success on the international stage. I look forward to working with them and helping them to fulfil those ambitions.

“I believe we can qualify and look forward to that journey with the players and the fans, starting against Cyprus and Belgium next month.”
