Scotland appoint Clarke as a manager, ahead of rivalry with Belgium

The Scottish Football Association have selected Steve Clarke as Scotland’s new manager on a three years contract.

Clarke, 55, leaves Kilmarnock after a successful time of two years at Rugby Park where he headed the Ayrshire club to third place in the Scottish Premiership, the club’s highest league finish since 1966 with a record points, total 67 points.

He was named the PFA Scotland and Scottish Football Writers’ Association Manager of the Year for his work at Kilmarnock.

Scotland, who are seeking in fifth place after two matches in the European Championship qualifiers, are watching to end their 22 years wait to reach the finals of a major tournament like Euro 2020.

Scotland faces Belgium and Cyprus in their next Euro 2020 qualifiers as Clarke bids to lead the national side to first major finals since the 1998 World Cup in France.

“It is an honour to be appointed Scotland National Head Coach and I will undertake those responsibilities with pride and commitment,” former St Mirren and defender Clarke said, who got six caps for Scotland between 1987 and 1994.
