Eriksson rubbishes Scotland link
Former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson has denied holding talks with the SFA about the vacant role with Scotland.
Scotland are on the hunt for a new manager after parting company with Alex McLeish earlier this month.
The likes of Sunderland boss Jack Ross and former Manchester United manager David Moyes have been tipped as candidates to succeed McLeish.
On Thursday, reports suggested former England head coach Eriksson, who is currently out of work after a short stint with the Philippines, was in the running for the post.
However, the Swede says he was surprised as anyone to hear the rumours and insists he hasn’t been in contact with the SFA.
Eriksson, speaking exclusively to Express Sport, said: ‘I am in China just now and these stories linking me with the Scotland job have come out of the blue.
‘I have no idea where these stories have come from because I haven’t spoken to or discussed the Scotland job with anyone.
‘I have also had no contact with the SFA.
I have not applied for the job and there is nobody who represents me that has put my name forward.
‘There are lots of agents in football who like to throw manager’s names about if they are not in a job, but I can assure you that if anyone has put my name forward then it has been done without me knowing.’
