New Scotland boss Gordon Strachan is odds-on at 10/11 with Ladbrokes to guide his team to a major tournament.
Euro 2016 is considered the most likely competition at 6/5, by Ladbrokes who make Scotland 150/1 to win that competition and the same firm offers 3/1 about Strachan’s troops beating England should such a match take place during his tenure.
For less optimistic factions of the Tartan Army, Ladbrokes quote odds of 25/1 for the former Celtic and Middlesbrough boss to be sacked before the end of the calendar year.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told Betrescue: “Strachan is odds-on to take the Tartan Army to an international tournament. There’s a real sense of optimism about his appointment with plenty of punters prepared to back him to deliver for Scotland.”
