DICK Advocaat refused to be drawn on whether he would be interested in the managerial vacancies at either the Rangers or Scotland after leading the Netherlands to victory in a friendly at Pittodrie last night.

A goal from Memphis Depay five minutes before half-time after a mistake by Callum McGregor ensured the Dutch edged to a narrow triumph in Advocaat's penultimate game in charge of his country.

The former Ibrox manager will stand down from his position after a friendly against Romania next week - but he refused to say if returning to this country to take charge of either the national team or his former club was a possibility after that.

"I still have until Tuesday," the 70-year-old said when asked if he would consider the Scotland or Rangers positions.

Advocaat, whose side failed to reach the Russia 2018 play-offs, felt the Netherlands had deserved to win the match, but praised Malky Mackay's young Scotland side for how they performed.

Mackay handed debuts to Ryan Christie, Jason Cummings, who came on as a substitute in the final few minutes, Ryan Jack and McGregor and also gave run-outs to Kenny McLean and John McGinn.

Despite their inexperience, the home team dominated long spells of the game and only suffered their first defeat to 2017 due to a rare error.

“I really enjoyed to be back," said Advocaat. "I have great memories of this country and this place. If you can win a game against Scotland it’s always a good feeling.

“We can always play better. But in the last five games we know Scotland did not lose. They lost this game.

"We had all the possession without creating a lot of chances. Scotland had a lot of players behind the ball.

"When that happens our individual players have got do something and we weren’t always capable of doing that because of the covering form Scotland. But it was a well-deserved win.

"With all due respect, I am watching my own team rather than my opponents. They were fighting unbelievably and trying to show they have futures at international level and impress their manager."
