Scotland manager Berti Vogts has launched a spirited defence of his record amid speculation that he is about to be relieved of his post.

The former manager of the German national team insists he will not walk away from the job.

The pressure on Vogts grew after Scotland’s 3-0 friendly defeat to Hungary on Wednesday.

“I understand the pressure from the press,” he said. “I’ve nothing to defend a 3-0 defeat. But I’m not a quitter.”

“I told you that a year ago and I am getting no pressure from the SFA either.

“In three or four years, Scotland will have a very good national team if all the boys in this group stay together.

“The people in the street know that but I need time.

“If we play like we did in the first half on Wednesday we will beat Slovenia. I am telling you.”
