McBerti's Highland Fling Continues...For Now

Embattled Scotland manager Bertie Vogts won a stay of execution on Tuesday when the Scottish Football Association (SFA) announced it would not be holding a board meeting to discuss his future. The German coach had been expected to pay the price for his side's disastrous start to their World Cup campaign with a decision on his ouster at the meeting in Glasgow. But a SFA spokesman said: "There will be no meeting of the SFA board today and no statement on the position of Berti Vogts. We have said all along that there will be a series of meetings held to discuss the overall situation. The performance of Scotland in the World Cup qualifying campaign is currently under review. There will be a further statement in due course." The SFA hierarchy held an initial meeting last Friday following Scotland's deflating 1-1 draw in Moldova. That result left them with just two points from their opening three games and in dire danger of failing to qualify for the World Cup finals for the second consecutive time.
