Scott Johnson: Scotland boss insists there will be no distractions when Wales visit Murrayfield
Scotland interim head coach Scott Johnson insists there will be no distractions when he faces his old side Wales in Saturday's Six Nations clash at Murrayfield.
The 50-year-old coached Wales on a temporary basis back in 2006, with a record of one draw and two defeats in the Six Nations, and also had a spell in charge of the Ospreys before heading to Scotland.
Johnson, who is looking to follow up back-to-back wins over Italy and Ireland this weekend, said: "I know them and I have coached them and I was fortunate to live in a country that was so good to me.
"But we are not at a stage where we can bog down on the opposition. We have got to focus on us.
"Our last performance showed great endeavour and there was great qualities from a human side. It's hard not to get attached to fellas when they do what they did. It was wonderful.
"But from a rugby point of view we have got to work on some things. To be caught up in the opposition is secondary.
"This is not about me, it's about Scotland v Wales and I'm coaching a 23 now that are wearing blue."
