sfalogoRicky Sbragia has quit as Scotland Under-21 boss following their 4-0 defeat to Ukraine in Kiev on Tuesday night.

Despite quitting Sbragia will remain at Hampden mentoring up and coming Scottish coaches and continue to work with the Under-19 and Under-16 squads, according to the Daily Record.

Scot Gemmill will replace Sbragia, who spent 13 months in the job after taking on the job full-time in August 2015.

Defeat to Ukraine tonight ended Scotland’s chances of qualifying for Euro 2017 with just two wins out of eight games in the campaign – as a talented side underperformed under Sbragia’s management.
