Gordon Strachan's future as Scotland national team manager is to be discussed on Thursday

Strachan was appointed as Scotland manager in January 2013 but has failed to qualify for a major tournament during his tenure as national team boss.

The Scottish FA announced that Strachan would not continue in the role after Scotland's World Cup hopes ended with a 2-2 draw in Slovenia on Sunday. BREAKING NEWS Gordon Strachan has left his position as Scotland manager.

Scotland missed out on a playoff place for next year's finals in Russian Federation by failing to beat Slovenia in their final Group F qualifier on Sunday.

A statement released by the Scottish FA, which also confirmed that Strachan's assistant coach Mark McGhee would be departing the national team setup, expressed the nation's disappointment at another botched qualification opportunity, but praised Strachan for clawing Scotland back to the brink of a playoff spot after a poor start to their campaign.

"Together we have shared some really magical moments and those memories will live with me forever". Through highs and lows you have stayed with the team and my biggest regret is not being able to provide the finals tournament you deserve.

After an SFA board meeting at Hampden Park, the governing body said it was "agreed that a new national coach should be recruited to provide fresh impetus" and the announcement suggested the decision was mutual.

He said: "The players in there, I've got to look after them". I know how disappointed he was that we couldn't secure a play-off place but to come so close was a tribute to the belief he instilled in his squad.
