Former Rangers manager Alex McLeish is set to be named as the new Scotland boss, according to reports, and the news has caused Celtic fans to go into meltdown on Twitter.

According to the Daily Record‘s Keith Jackson, McLeish is “on the brink” of replacing Gordon Strachan as Scotland boss – a decade after leaving the job to take over at Birmingham City.

The 59-year-old spent five years as Rangers manager after replacing Dick Advocaat and won two Scottish titles, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups at Ibrox.

Celtic fans went into meltdown at the news thanks to McLeish’s Ibrox past – with some fans keen to focus on his spell with Rangers.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

McLeish’s time in charge of the national team saw them miss out on a place at Euro 2008 despite beating France in Paris in one of Scotland’s most famous results ever.

The former Aberdeen star’s reign in charge of the national team only lasted 10 months before he resigned to manage in England’s Premier League.

McLeish has also managed Motherwell, Hibernian, Nottingham Forest, Birmingham City, Aston Villa, Genk and Zamalek.

Former Scotland boss Gordon Strachan was sacked after he failed to qualify from Scotland’s World Cup qualification group to extend the Scots’ absence from a major finals to at least 22 years.
