Scotland have plunged to a new low of 77th in the Fifa world rankings.
Scotland suffered some poor results under Berti Vogts
The news comes nine days after the resignation of national manager Berti Vogts following a poor start to the World Cup qualifying campaign.
Scotland's fall of nine places puts them behind the likes of Estonia, Ghana, Angola and Thailand - and level with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
England are unchanged in seventh, with the Republic of Ireland also static in 14th, Wales down six places to 63rd and Northern Ireland up three to 107th.
Brazil remain top of the rankings ahead of France and Argentina.
