Scotland 'make official approach for Michael O'Neill'

The Scottish Football Association has made an official approach for Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill, it is understood.

O'Neill has emerged as the leading contender to replace Gordon Strachan after guiding his team to the second round of Euro 2016 and the recent World Cup play-offs.

The ball is now in the court of the Irish Football Association, which has O'Neill under contract until the end of the next European Championship campaign.
