Levein set to discover his fate

31 October 2012 09:18

Craig Levein expects to discover early next week whether he will remain as Scotland manager.

Levein's job is under threat after a poor start to the World Cup qualifying campaign which has left Scotland bottom of their group with two points from four matches.

Qualification for Brazil 2014 already looks an insurmountable task and Levein met Scottish Football Association chief executive Stewart Regan and president Campbell Ogilvie this week to discuss his position.

Levein told BBC Scotland: "I had a chat with Stewart Regan and Campbell Olgilvie and I'll find out one way or the other early next week."

He added: "The squad for the Luxembourg game will be named on Tuesday and there will be an announcement before then.

"I'm hugely proud to be Scotland manager and want to continue doing the job."

Scotland face Luxembourg in an away friendly on November 14 and do not have another qualifier until hosting Wales on March 22.

Levein, who took over in December 2009, had already been under pressure after Scotland drew their opening Hampden qualifiers against Serbia and Macedonia, and a double defeat by Wales and Belgium leaves him uncertain of his future.
