Stuart McCall: New role with Scotland

The Motherwell boss, who has been named assistant national coach, joins Fir Park predecessor Mark McGhee in the role following his appointment last week.

McCall, a former midfielder with Everton and Rangers, scored one goal in 40 matches for Scotland between 1990 and 1998.

In a statement, the 48-year-old, who has led Motherwell to the Scottish Cup final and Champions League qualifiers, said: "I am thrilled to have been asked by Gordon to join his backroom team.

"Playing for my country was the highlight of my career and I've been fortunate enough to play at World Cups and European Championships.

"They hold special memories for me and the Scotland supporters deserve a return to those days.

"I am proud to be asked to assist with the national team and look forward to working with an excellent squad of players and two outstanding coaches in Gordon and Mark."

Former Celtic boss Strachan said: "In many ways Stuart typified the classic Scotland international player. He was passionate and combative but was also hugely influential and inspirational.

"He has done a tremendous job at Motherwell and his knowledge of the game, especially of the Scottish scene, will be invaluable.

"I am excited about working with Mark and Stuart and I am sure the players will benefit from their coaching experience."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
