The Scottish FA have announced that Malky Mackay is set to take interim charge of the national team after Gordon Strachan left the role by mutual consent.

Strachan’s Scotland failed to reach the 2018 World Cup play-offs but the choice to replace him with the SFA’s performance director, albeit on a temporary basis, has caused significant controversy.

Mackay is due to combine both jobs as the squad prepare for a November friendly against the Netherlands at Pittodrie.

"The past is the past and I genuinely believe Malky Mackay is the right man to take Scotland forward" insists SFA Chief Exec Jake Ladbible

Strachan exposed for poor decisions. Malky Mackay exposed as racist, anti-Semitic homophobe. SFA forgive some sins more easily than others.

Scotland have made a mistake having Malky Mackay as interim manager. He's a snake. A gay snake. Not to be trusted
