quote Sky Sports NewsHi Chris you sit here as the new manager of Scotland, congratulations! But we have a major question for you before we talk about the Scotland job, what are your plans with Rangers? are you quitting or are you going to try and juggle both jobs?
quote Christopher BurnsThank you, well i expected that question, i am going to remain as Rangers manager so yes i will be doing both jobs, i dont think that that is such a big thing because i am a manager here in Scotland so anything i need to know about the national team i will already know as i am based here and know the Scottish based players inside out and anyone i have to see down south i will have my scouts for that so i dont see any conflict of interest. In saying that i do think it will be a hard task at times but i can handle that, i've never shied from hard work and i don't intent to start now.
quote Sky Sports NewsOkay thanks for clearing that up, so you mentioned about the players based here and elsewhere, what will your selection policy be? Will you be going with the tried and tested and goiong with players who have garnered a reputation?
quote Christopher BurnsWell the players who have garnered a reputation have earned that rep so i will be picking them if they are playing well but anyone who is playing well and playing a sufficient standard of football will be chosen so we will not just be picking anyone based on their repuation.
quote Sky Sports NewsCraig Levein received a lot of flak when he was in charge and infact he also received critisism from you as well, do you think that you have what it takes to make this nation successful?
quote Christopher BurnsYes, without i doubt i think we can be successful, people say we don't have the players but i disagree i do think we have the players i just think we need the correct formula to get everything right.
quote Sky Sports NewsGiven your job with Rangers people are speculating that your International squad will have many of your club players involved, what would you say about that?
quote Christopher BurnsOf course i will be playing some of my club players and what would be wrong with that? We are the Scottish champions 5 years ,going on 6, running so they are winners and that is what i want. They will only be playing if they are performing though and as regards to the bias element to it, i could be bias towards Rangers and rest some players internationally to suit my club schedule so it works both ways, obviously i won't be doing that however as there is no professionalism in that and i strive to be professional.
quote Sky Sports NewsScott Brown is the Scotland captain presently, will you be looking to change that or keep it as it is?
quote Christopher BurnsWell that is something i will have to have a good think about, Brown was captain under a failing side so obviously i have to consider that but that doesn't mean i blame the players from the previous regime, however it does mean i really need to think long and hard about who our captain should be.
quote Sky Sports NewsOkay thank you for speaking with us and good luck.
quote john1992No i'll put an update on in the next couple of minutes, my internets been off but its all back up and running now the updates for it just arent frequent anymore since i got a social life and stopped playing this so much!you stopped this mate?
