SCOTLAND has embarrassed the FA by appointing black coach Alex Dyer as Steve Clarke’s national team No2 – despite England promising to ensure more BAME roles.

Kilmarnock owner Billy Bowie gave his blessing for the Englishman to team up with the new national manager.

Dyer will be on board for June’s Euro 2020 qualifiers — but will also remain as Rugby Park assistant.

The FA have promised to ensure there are more Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) coaches in the English game.

And Bowie told SunSport: “I have given the go-ahead for Alex to join Steve.

“Alex will stay at Kilmarnock as well, so that will work out fine for us.”

Meanwhile, Bowie and his board will start the process of finding Clarke’s replacement next week.

After his appointment, Clarke said: “It is an honor to be appointed Scotland national head coach and I will undertake those responsibilities with pride and commitment.
