SFA agree deal for Levein

Published Add your comment

The Scottish Football Association have agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Craig Levein to become Scotland manager.

The contract has not yet been signed due to adverse weather conditions.

However, if Levein can get down to Hampden from his Fife home then the SFA will hold a press conference later on Wednesday.

Earlier, Dundee United confirmed that, subject to confirmation of compensation from the Scottish Football Association, Levein was on his way to succeed George Burley, who departed last month following a 3-0 friendly defeat by Wales in Cardiff.

Certainly Levein is in no doubt as to where his future lies, telling United's official website: "While it is a great honour to be asked to manage your country, it was a very difficult decision to leave Dundee United.

"I have, and will continue to have, a great affection and respect for the club and its supporters, who have given me such strong support from the day I arrived.

"I also leave behind a great bunch of players and a strong backroom staff and I know the club is in good hands.

"I wish them and Dundee United well for the future."
