Steve Clarke: Kilmarnock manager appointed Scotland head coach on deal until end of 2022 World Cup qualifying

Clarke, the former St Mirren and Chelsea defender, joins from Kilmarnock a day after guiding them to their highest league finish since 1966.

The 55-year-old replaces Alex McLeish, whose second spell as Scotland boss ended in April.

“The Scottish FA is delighted to announce the appointment of Steve Clarke as Scotland national team head coach,” a statement read.

“Steve joins from Kilmarnock on a three-year contract until the end of the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign and was appointed after an extensive recruitment process undertaken by the Scottish FA Chief Executive, Ian Maxwell, and endorsed by the board.”
