Alex McLeish has been heavily criticised after Scotland lost to both Israel and Portugal last week… but the former Rangers boss could still turn things around.
That’s if he’s willing to listen to some of our suggestions of how to breathe some life into this seemingly faltering Scotland side.
McLeish is only eights games into the job but there are already sections of the Tartan Army who are wondering whether the Scottish FA have made a terrible decision in handing the reigns to the 59-year-old.
And when you look at the statistics, that Scotland have won just twice and lost the other six fixtures under McLeish… it’s not hard to see why there are an ever-increasing number of doubters.
But we’re a glass half-full kind of website… so here’s how the ex-Birmingham manager can turn things around:
1. Settle Any Issue With Leigh Griffiths
Leigh Griffiths is probably Scotland’s best player.
Whether he’s willing to withdraw from the squad to focus on his fitness for Celtic or not, there isn’t much disputing how good he is in a Scotland jersey at this stage.
Putting it simply, the 28-year-old scores goals and creates chances.
And if Scotland are to pull together, they are going to need to rely on experienced heads who regularly play at the highest level.
A reported feud between the manager and the star player can’t be doing the dressing room any good either.
