Only days after the SFA got rid of Stewart Regan and promised to look to the future the emergence of who is favourite for the Scotland job has left supporters baffled.
It emerged today, the SFA board want to talk to Walter Smith about returning to the post over ten years after he walked out on the national team.
The ex-Rangers manager, who turns 70 later this month is being sounded out by a possible return, leading many Scots in disbelief.
When Scotland are supposed to be looking to the future, the campaign for a job for one of the old boys seems beyond comprehension.

Walter Smith? The SFA are truly terrified of trying anything different.— Aidan Ritchie (@AidanRitchie27) February 5, 2018
Another campaign watching us wallop the ball 40 yards up to Chris Martin. ?
Can't wait till Walter Smith calls up Kris Boyd and leaves Griffiths out the squad.— Tony C-FC (@Green_Curve67) February 5, 2018
Can you imagine the damage Walter Smith would do to the Scotland squad if he became Scotland manager. Would ruin the country ???— Marc O’Hare (@marc_celticfc) February 5, 2018
Walter Smith will be 70 in a couple of weeks. The only other Int manager at that age is Lars Lagerbeck— Barcabhoy (@Barcabhoy1) February 5, 2018
He hasn’t managed in any capacity for nearly 7 years. Lagerbeck has managed continuously
His win % as Scotland manager is almost identical to Craig Levein’s
So Why Walter ?
