SFA would welcome Butcher

Scottish Football Association chief executive Gordon Smith will have no problem if George Burley asks to bring in former England captain Terry Butcher as his assistant.

Burley was unveiled as Scotland's new national team head coach at Hampden on Thursday and revealed he has begun the process of recruiting his number two, but refused to confirm that his choice would necessarily be a Scotsman.

Burley and Butcher, who won 77 caps for England, go back to their days as Ipswich players and reports claim they could be teaming up again at Hampden.

Smith insists that the nationality of Burley's backroom staff is immaterial.

'We have a scenario where the manager is a full-time appointment but the other appointments are not, they are part-time,' he told talkSPORT.

'If Terry was going to be used a coach on match days or match occasions then it would be on a part-time basis.

'So I don't have a problem with that.

'George hasn't said yet who he is going to bring in, there are two people who usually come with him.

'If there was a complaint about George not living much in Scotland then that certainly can't be levelled at Terry because apart from his stint in Australia and a little time down at Brentford, Terry spends all his time in Scotland.'
