Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam has blamed the press after hearing reports that Craig Levein had lost his job as national team manager.

The Scottish Football Association are expected to announce imminently that Levein has lost his job due to a competitive record of three wins from 12 matches and with Scotland bottom of their World Cup qualifying group. But Adam showed his continuing support as reports began to break of Levein's departure.

The Stoke player wrote on his official Twitter account: "On my way back to hear Craig Levein has gone. Unbelievable. Can't believe the Scottish papers got what they wanted."
