Plenty of Fans Reckon Michael O’Neill is Set to Become Scotland’s New Boss

Plenty of Fans Reckon Michael O’Neill is Set to Become Scotland’s New Boss

Michael O’Neill narrowly failed to take Northern Ireland to the World Cup against Switzerland last night – and now Scotland fans are tipping him to lead them to glory.

The former Brechin City manager has worked wonders with the Irish and only missed out on next year’s finals after losing 1-0 on aggregate to a hotly disputed goal.

Moreover, O’Neill led Northern Ireland to the European Championships in 2016 – the country’s first major tournament in 31 years – and took them from 88th in the world when he took over to 20th.

It’s been an impressive stint in charge, but with his contract now drawing to an end, could O’Neill be about to take over from Gordon Strachan at Hampden?

This lot definitely think so:

Having worked in Scottish football previously, O’Neill has always retained an interest in it, and still lives in Scotland – but would he really be the right man to restore Scotland’s footballing pride?

What do you think?
