Gordon Strachan has agreed to take over as manager of the Scottish national team and the move will be officially announced later on Tuesday, according to British media reports.
Former Scotland international and Manchester United midfielder Strachan, who won 50 caps in the 1980s and 1990s, will replace Craig Levein, who was sacked in November last year.
Strachan, 55, who also had playing stints at Leeds United and Aberdeen, has previously managed several clubs including Southampton and Celtic though he has not taken charge of a club since leaving Middlesbrough over two years ago.
Scotland, who have not made a major tournament since 1998, are bottom of their 2014 World Cup European qualifying Group A after four matches, eight points behind Belgium and Croatia.
