Levein to be offered Scotland post

Former Leicester City manager Craig Levein is set to be offered the role of Scotland National team manager, according to the BBC.

The 45-year-old Dundee United manager looks sure to be provided with the opportunity to manage his home nation for the first time, and be the first to lead the Scots to a major tournament since 1998.

Levein spent just under a year and half in charge of the Foxes, where he endured a torrid time in the Championship before being sacked in January 2006 with the club in the relegation zone.

He was one of a string of poor managerial appointments for the club in the noughties, as fans witnessed the club spiral into the lower depths of the division.

His record with Leicester certainly left a lot to be desired, as City won just over a quarter of games under his stewardship.

More memorable perhaps were his signings during his spell with the club, as frequent visits back to Scotland for bargain transfers proved to be the team's downfall.

Just mere mentions of the names Momo Sylla, Rab Douglas, Alan Maybury, Joe Hamill and Peter Gilbert to name just a few are enough to bring back painful memories for City fans. It wasn't all bad for Levein however, as Patrick Kisnorbo, Iain Hume and Matty Fryatt were all brought to the club by the Scot.

It seems things just weren't meant to be for Levein in England.

In all fairness, his managerial record in Scotland speaks very much for itself. A hugely successful four-year spell in charge of Hearts brought him to the attention of City in the first place, whilst his current achievements with Dundee United have earnt him his fair share of plaudits in Scotland.

And it now appears as though City's former-failure could be in charge of the Scottish national team soon enough having managed to find his managerial feet well since leaving the Foxes.
