Bonhof will not leave Under-21s

Ranier Bonhof insists he will stay on as Scotland Under-21 manager, despite Berti Vogts' decision to resign as boss of the senior side.

Bonhof was Vogts' assistant during Germany's Euro 1996 win but he says their Scottish jobs are not connected.

"I have my own job to do and won't resign," Bonhof told the Scottish Sun.

"Berti and I were always on different contracts so we don't have to do what the other does. I'm very settled here and I won't be leaving."

Bonhof was appointed as the Under-21s first full-time coach in August 2002, while Vogts took up his post the previous spring.

The former World Cup winner has not spoken to Vogts since his resignation but he admitted he was not shocked.

"Berti and I spoke last Thursday and he said something would happen this week," Bonhof added.

"I haven't spoken to him yet but it hasn't come as a great surprise because he was left with no life here.

"He couldn't go out, for goodness sake, and no-one should have to live like that."

The Under-21s next match is a friendly against Sweden at Falkirk on 16 November.
