Scotland Fans Really Don’t Want the SFA to Appoint Gary Caldwell

Gary Caldwell admitted that he has applied for the vacant Scotland job this morning… but the country’s football fans desperately don’t want the former Celtic and Hibs defender to be their next manager.

The SFA have been on the search for a new manager since Gordon Strachan left his post in October.

The 35-year-old, who retired in 2015, earned 55 Scotland caps during his career and feels he has “a lot to offer”… if he were to take the country’s top job.

Caldwell has had two jobs in management since retiring from playing, his first with Wigan where he lead the Latics back to the English Championship following their relegation to League One.

He then took the Chesterfield job in January 2016, but was sacked just eight months later with the club struggling to survive in League Two.
