Shelley Kerr has stepped down as manager of Scotland women’s team.

Her side failed to qualify for Euro 2021, following a 1-0 defeat to Finland at the start of December.

Kerr’s tenure will be remembered for her success in leading Scotland to last year’s World Cup.

She said: “Naturally, I am deeply disappointed that we failed to qualify in our recent UEFA Euro qualifying campaign.

“There were huge expectations surrounding the whole team, based on our recent successes, but I couldn’t be prouder than to have led the team – as well as the team behind the team – to the Women’s World Cup.

“I thank the Scottish FA and all who supported me in fulfilling my dream of leading our country to the World Cup finals for the first time.

“I am privileged to have played a part in such an historical moment in Scottish football.

“That is something that will live with me forever.”
