The Scottish FA can confirm that Danny Lennon’s interim appointment as Scotland Under-21 coach has now come to an end.
Danny leaves with the association’s best wishes after dedicating himself to the stewardship of the team for the 2-1 victory against Hungary in Tatabanya last month.

Stewart Regan, Scottish FA Chief Executive: “I would like to thank Danny for the professionalism and enthusiasm with which he took charge of the under-21 squad.

“While Danny was aware of the short-term nature of the job, his preparation for the match was meticulous and he was rewarded with a victory that he will savour for years to come. I know he thrives on the day-to-day involvement of club management and I am certain he will be a success in his next challenge. On behalf of the Scottish FA I wish Danny the best of luck for the future.”

Danny Lennon: “I knew from the outset this was an interim appointment but it was an honour and pleasure to serve my country at international level. I put everything into making sure the under-21s got a positive result and I would like to thank the players and coaching staff for ensuring a great performance and a win, one I will treasure for the rest of my career.

“I would like to thank Stewart Regan and everyone at the Scottish FA and would welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”

A permanent appointment for the role of national under-21 coach will be made in due course.
