Tommy Wright has laughed off suggestions he could be the next Scotland manager.

The St Johnstone boss has been linked with the role if Gordon Strachan is axed after an SFA board meeting today.

But Wright insists he’s only concentrating on his own job and facing Rangers on Friday night.

He said: “My agent must be doing well. I don’t know where it’s coming from, but I saw a list of some of the other names mentioned for the Scotland job … I feel quite humble about it.

“I’m concentrating on doing a job, Gordon Strachan has had a great end to the campaign and was unfortunate with the result they had in the last game. My focus is just totally on trying to get a result against Rangers.”

Meanwhile, Hearts boss Craig Levein insists Strachan should be given more time as boss.

He said: “I know the fans are disappointed but the players feel it more than anybody. Trust me. It’s them who want to look back on their careers and say they played at big tournaments.

“But things are improving and I would like to see Gordon get another go and I’m sure the players would as well.

“I genuinely do believe there has been progress so I hope Gordon is still in place and gives it another go.

“It’s a lonely job and a tough one. He’ll be disappointed but I’m sure he’ll be disappointed for the guys who tried valiantly to get themselves to a major tournament.”
