Andy Roxburgh & Craig Brown

Post by Gabe » Sat Oct 06, 2018 4:36 pm

I have found on internet the following numbers of Scotland matches managed by Andy Roxburgh and Craig Brown: 61 for Roxburgh and 71 for Brown.

I have instead (and RSSSF too has it) 62 for Andy Roxburgh (the last one in Rome vs Italy on 13th October 1993) and 70 for Craig Brown (the last one in Glasgow vs Latvia on 6th October 2001).
The difference is the match in Rome vs Italy in October 1993.
For that match our archive has Roxburgh not Craig Brown, who instead gained his first match in charge according to the source's opinion.
It says that Roxburgh resigned in September 1993, so before the match in Rome vs Italy.

My question : the correct numbers for Roxburgh and Brown are.... ?

As usual, your help is much appreciated.

Roxburgh resigned on 13 September 1993.

Craig Brown was then appointed caretaker and selected the team v Italy in October 1993, but was not formally appointed by the SFA until 17 November, the day of the match in Malta. He would always say that his first match as Scotland manager was against Malta - it made his statistics look better, I think.
