GORDON SMITH has revealed he was overruled by the SFA board when he tried to appoint Graeme Souness – with George Burley ending up in the hot seat. The organisation’s former chief executive wanted the Rangers and Liverpool legend to lead the national team after Alex McLeish left for Birmingham. Smith worked for SFA and was later director of football at Rangers Souness won silverware as a manager at Rangers, Liverpool, Galatasary and Blackburn Burley was appointed in January 2008 and sacked by SFA in November 2009 But his plans were scuppered when Hampden blazers vetoed the move for Souness and instead backed a swoop for Burley, who was with Southampton at the time. The ex-Hearts gaffer had a disastrous spell as Scotland boss and the infamous Boozegate scandal happened on his watch. Smith told Open Goal’s Si Ferry: “I thought I was able to choose the manager being the chief executive but I wasn’t. “George Burley was one of my candidates but not my first choice. 🎥⚽️| Gordon Smith tells @siferry8 that Graeme Souness was his first choice for Scotland manager during his time as CEO. Would he still be a shout for the current managerial vacancy? Full Interview MONDAY @ 5PM pic.twitter.com/PFiXRhESq5 — Open Goal (@opengoalsport) April 19, 2019 “It would’ve been Graeme Souness. He came along for an interview. “But it went to the board…it was basically that he didn’t conform to what they were wanting. [article-rail-section title=”Most Read” posts_category=”3″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “So George Burley became the strong candidate. He’d done well at Hearts and he was now with Southampton.” But the other contenders for the post were left furious when it was leaked to the media that Burley was to become Scotland manager. WHO GERS WINS Rangers fan SAS: Who Dares Wins star Anthony Middleton delighted after getting signed top from Steven Gerrard Smith said: “I hadn’t even informed the others because if I couldn’t agree a fee for George Burley [with Southampton], that was ruling him out. “Unfortunately what happened was the press got word, it was leaked out and the other candidates were annoyed by the fact they hadn’t been told they weren’t getting it.” Keep up to date with ALL the latest news and transfers from Scottish football plus fixtures, results and live match commentary [bc_video video_id=”6027908192001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”SAS hero Anthony Middleton delighted as he receives signed Rangers top from DJ Ewen Cameron”]
