David Moyes favourite to replace under-fire Gordon Strachan at Scotland

If Scotland fans thought they’d hit a nadir after failing to qualify for their tenth successive major tournament, then they should take a look at some of the names in the frame to replace the under-fire Gordon Strachan at the helm...

At the time of writing it’s that man David Moyes, fresh off the back of three torrid tenures at Man Utd, Real Sociedad, and Sunderland, who tops the market at 3/1 with Bet Victor.

The current incumbent, Strachan, is fearing for his future after failing to lead The Tartan Army through to their first tournament since the 1998 World Cup, after the Scots finished 3rd in qualifying Group F, between winners England and runners-up Slovakia.

Strachan spluttered out one of the more peculiar excuses in the aftermath of Scotland’s 2-2 draw with Slovenia, stating that his side were hindered “genetically” (scroll down for video).

Oh dear.

Should Strachan either walk or be axed a potential appointment of Moyes, who is desperately looking to rejuvenate his managerial career, will continue to be the subject of widespread debate.

The Scot has not been seen since his sorry spell with Sunderland came to an end after just one season, which culminated in relegation down to the Championship.

Although, in fairness his successor, Simon Grayson, has also also failed to motivate the confidence-crushed club who are currently struggling in the second-tier relegation zone.

Next in the running is Malky Mackay, someone who has not managed in two-and-a-half-years following a 25-game stint at Wigan. The Scot previously led Cardiff up to the Premier League, but his reputation later took a knock following allegations of “racist, sexist and homophobic” messages, although in the end he wasn’t charged by the FA.

The 45-year-old, who has also managed Watford, has been working as a performance director at the Scottish Football Association since December, hence his appearance in the top echelons of the betting at 6/1.

Elsewhere, Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is an 8/1 shot, followed by Alex McLeish at 10/1, then Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill - he lives in Edinburgh - who can be found at 12/1, ahead of the 16/1-priced Paul Lambert.
