Defeats to Wales and Belgium have virtually ended Scotland's hopes of qualifying for the World Cup in 2014 and the country's seven-man board met to discuss their manager's future

The Scottish Football Association have confirmed that talks will continue next week over the future of manager Craig Levein.
