The campaign to shoe-horn Walter Smith in as Scotland manager has been stepped up with the former EBT supervisor due to sit down with the SFA this week.

According to a report in the Daily Record, which broke the story alongside BBC Scotland, the 69-year-old was approached yesterday and will meet up this week with the three man selection committee.

With Stewart Regan gone and the International Committee split in two over the decision to bin the former Yorkshire cricket chief it’s unclear who Smith will actually meet up with.

News of an approach for Smith was greeted with dismay by football fans across Scotland.

In 2007, halfway through the campaign to reach the 2008 European Championship Finals, Smith walked out on Scotland to join Rangers (IL) with no sign of the SFA getting compensation.

At Ibrox Smith masterminded the biggest example of cheating that the game has ever known as players were tempted to Ibrox with secret ‘tax free’ EBT payments that were kept quiet from the SFA and SPL.

Queen of the South and Falkirk were among the clubs that lost cup finals to teams rammed with players that were ineligible.

Motherwell, Hearts and Celtic missed out on Champions League places due to the cheating inside Ibrox on Smith’s watch with Aberdeen, Hibs and Kilmarnock missing out on UEFA Cup places to a club playing by a different set of rules.

The SFA have never taken any action against Rangers (IL) for fielding ineligible players in the Scottish Cup.

Spartans and East Stirling were both booted out of the Scottish Cup for registration errors while Smith and Rangers (IL) carried on immune to the rules that other clubs operated within.
