Southampton boss George Burley remained tight-lipped as it emerged the Scottish Football Association has made an official approach to his club as part of their search for the successor to Alex McLeish as national team manager.

Speculation has been mounting in recent weeks as the SFA began whittling down a list of applicants into a shortlist of serious contenders.

Burley, something of a dark horse in a race in which Celtic coach Tommy Burns and Motherwell manager Mark McGhee are bookies´ favourites, was reluctant to discuss the situation on Monday night, saying: "You would have to contact the club. It´s all speculation at the moment."
