James McArthur has urged the Scottish Football Association to resist any pressure to sack Scotland boss Craig Levein.

A huge question mark hangs over the manager's future after the Scots slumped to the bottom of their World Cup qualifying group following Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat in Belgium. Some members of the Tartan Army made it clear who they want to replace Levein as they unfurled a banner reading 'Strachan SOS' during the defeat in Brussels.

But, as far as McArthur is concerned, the national team already has the right man at the helm in Levein, and the Wigan midfielder said: "I would love him to stay. I think he's a brilliant manager. He has done everything right by the players."
