Gordon Strachan's future to be discussed at SFA meeting
The board will review Scotland's failed World Cup 2018 qualification campaign.
Gordon Strachan's future as Scotland manager is expected to be decided within a week at a meeting of the Scottish FA board.
The governing body has a scheduled board meeting arranged and will consider the World Cup qualifying campaign, which ended in disappointment with a 2-2 draw in Slovenia on Sunday evening.
Strachan's contract to manage the national team expires next month and he was non-committal when asked if he wanted to continue in the role.
The manager said in the immediate aftermath of the game that it was not the time to discuss his future.
Scotland have no competitive matches until the second half of 2018 when the Nations League begins and any decision on the manager will be focused on that competition and the qualification campaign for Euro 2020.
The governing body is considering arranging a friendly for next month.
The Russia 2018 qualification campaign was the second time Scotland failed to reach a major finals under Strachan, following the failed attempt to qualify for Euro 2016.
Despite a poor start to World Cup qualification, a run of four wins and a draw from five games had put Scotland in touching distance of the play-offs.
A win against Slovenia would have sealed progress to the knockout tie but the 2-2 final score ended Scotland's hopes.
SFA chairman Alan McRae is already on record from before Sunday's match saying he wants Strachan to continue in the role.
The manager's future was under consideration in November 2016 following a 3-0 defeat to England. After a five-hour board meeting it was decided he should continue in the role.
In a statement following the meeting, SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said: "The board have considered the team's performance since the start of the campaign and subsequently discussed the disappointing points total after four matches.
"Gordon shared the disappointment of the board and, of course, the fans. He is adamant, however, that we can recover the position and believes a play-off place still to be attainable.
"The board are convinced that he still has the hunger for this challenge and we have four home qualifiers in 2017 to rejuvenate our campaign.
"We support Gordon unanimously in improving our qualification prospects."
