The Scottish Football Association (SFA) has announced the return of Alex McLeish as Scotland head coach.
McLeish returns to the post he held for less than a year before leaving to become Birmingham City boss in 2007.
The 59-year-old replaces his former Aberdeen and Scotland teammate Gordon Strachan, who left in October after failing to guide the country to the World Cup in Russia.
Michael O'Neill turned down the opportunity to manage Scotland in January and opted instead to sign a new contract with Northern Ireland.
"I am incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to lead my country already and I am immensely proud to be in this position for a second time," McLeish told reporters.
“There is much to be positive about in Scottish football, with players playing at the highest level and promising talent breaking through.
“With Hampden Park as one of the host venues for Euro 2020 we have an amazing opportunity to showcase our talents to the world from our own back yard.
“I am relishing the challenge of leading us to a major tournament and I cannot wait to get started.”
McLeish's first games in charge will be the friendly against Costa Rica at Hampden Park on March 23, followed by an away game against Hungary four days later.
