Garry Wilson’s role as a scout for the Scottish FA has been shrouded in doubt following the departure of Craig Levein as manager of the Scottish national team.

Eastbourne Town assistant Wilson accepted the role in February after he was sacked by Eastbourne Borough.

The job involves travelling across the country to look for emerging Scottish talent but, as the cogs start turning for changes in the Scottish FA’s make-up, Wilson’s future is uncertain.

He said, “I have spoken to them and it’s been put on the backburner. It’s a fantastic role to have as it let me build good relationships with academies and senior clubs. I’ve had quite a bit of success in terms of getting youngsters into the squad.

“I wasn’t surprised Levein was sacked but I was disappointed. He did a lot of work behind the scenes making plans for the future but the public don’t get to see that.”
