Fulham’s Under-23 Head Coach Peter Grant has been appointed Assistant Coach of the Scottish National team.

Alex McLeish has appointed former Scotland internationals Grant and James McFadden as his assistant coaches, with Stevie Woods named as goalkeeping coach.

The trio have been appointed on two-year contracts and will join up with the Scotland squad ahead of the Costa Rica fixture at Hampden Park on Friday, 23 March.

Grant, who won two Scotland caps in a playing career spanning three decades, will combine his Scotland coaching duties with his role as Lead Professional Development Coach at Fulham.

“I am delighted to be in a position to welcome Peter, James and Stevie to the Scotland coaching staff”, said McLeish. “I’m relishing the prospect of working with them on the training ground.

“The three offer a complementary blend of experience, enthusiasm and success – both as players and as coaches – and are fully aware of the responsibility that comes with being part of the national team staff.

“Peter has enjoyed a distinguished coaching career and is already familiar with the set-up in the Scottish FA’s Performance department, having worked with our Under-21 team last year.

“I have known Peter for a long time – in fact, I played alongside him for Scotland in both his appearances for the national team – and I am thrilled that he has accepted my offer to work with the team.”

“With these appointments, the final pieces are in place for my backroom staff and we can now begin the process of selecting and training a successful team to entertain the Scotland supporters and take us back to a major tournament, starting with the UEFA Nations League matches later this year."
