Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant manager's job with Scotland.

Scotland are searching for a new manager following their decision to axe Craig Levein as boss earlier this week.

Former Scotland captain Lambert has been mentioned as a possible candidate to succeed Levein, but the Villa chief insists he has no plans to move into international management.

When asked if he had any interest in the Scotland job, Lambert told Sky Sports News: "No, I am really happy in club football.

"I think it will be a great honour for whoever gets it.
