Scottish FA chief executive Gordon Smith has revealed he has "at least six or seven" candidates in mind to replace Alex McLeish but will not take a financial gamble on a new boss.

McLeish resigned as Scotland manager last month to achieve his ambition of managing in the Barclays Premier League, joining Birmingham, and although Smith does not expect to make an appointment until early in the new year he should have a short-list written up before Christmas.

"We are researching the market - we have at least six or seven people we are looking at," he told BBC Radio Five Live. "We have an under-21s coach we want to be putting in place very soon - we are further on with that process."
