There are no plans to hold a board meeting on Thursday to explore the future of Scotland manager Alex McLeish, as stated by the Scottish FA.

It follows paper reports suggesting McLeish will be sacked at the subsequent twenty four hours after having a disappointing start to the Euro 20 20 qualifying effort.

He’s been under great pressure since last week’s defeat by Kazakhstan and also an unimpressive win over San Marino.

McLeish has controlled five wins from 12 games in his second spell in control.

Despite being under scrutiny from early in his reign, he advised Scotland to a Nations League play-off place by ending before Israel and Albania.

On Sunday in San Marino, the Tartan Army left their feelings known by booing when a picture of McLeish looked on the big screen and later spat contrary to the Scottish FA.

Criticism is a crap – Levein

One among McLeish’s predecessors, Craig Levein, said the criticism after the introduction two qualifiers is”crap” and makes him thankful he is no longer in the role.

Hearts boss Levein has been Scotland manager for three years from 2009, before being chased after a failure to hit Euro 2014 and a disappointing start to the World Cup 2018 qualification campaign.

“It simply makes me think’thank god I’m not doing that any longer’. It’s crap, the whole thing,” Levein said.

“We are a play-off a way from qualifying through the Nations League. I believe every one has to relax a little bit. It seems that everybody is in such a hurry to hand out stick. Also it will not help the manager also it will not help the players.

“There are deeper lying problems and that I think we will need to take just a step back and also have a small patience. I understand we aren’t planning to however we haven’t any choice”
