Former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan will be named as the new Scotland boss this week, according to widespread reports.

The 55-year-old has been the overwhelming bookmakers' favourite to take the job since Craig Levein was sacked in November after a poor start to Scotland's World Cup qualifying campaign.

Strachan, who won 50 caps for Scotland, enjoyed a largely successful period as Celtic manager between 2005 and 2009 but has been out of management since leaving Middlesbrough in October, 2010.
