Scotland job not for Souness

Former Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers and Liverpool manager Graeme Souness has no interest in becoming Scotland's next boss.
It is anticipated that current manager George Burley will be axed at some time this week in the wake of Scotland's dire display in Saturday's 3-0 defeat against Wales.
However, Souness told Sky Sports News: "It's not up for grabs as we speak. If it was up for grabs next week, next month or a year from now I wouldn't be applying for it.
"I don't want the job. I wouldn't want the job. It's not for me at this time, my life is going in a different direction.
"You could have Arsene Wenger or Sir Alex Ferguson managing that group of players, but the outcome wouldn't be much different.
"It's a difficult job in the current climate simply because they don't have the quality.
"As a Scottish manager you can't go out and buy players. You're working with a group of players that the country has produced at that particular time."
