SNP Europe spokesman Peter Grant mocked the prime minister following the latest Brexit talks, joking that she had been interviewed for the post as a potential successor to Gordon Strachan as national head coach.

Strachan left his position in October after Scotland failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Mr Grant told the Commons: "It's no surprise that the leadership contenders are now circling around the Prime Minister.

"I can reveal there is a vacancy coming up because the Prime Minister has today been interviewed for the job of Scotland football manager for her fantastic ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory - it could be put to very good use."
