Profile: Danny McLENNAN
Head Coach
Daniel Morrison McLennan , Scottish football coach. Born in Stirling, Scotland 1929; died 11 May 2004, Crail, Scotland aged 79.

McLennan started his coaching career at Berwick and Worcester before going on an amazing globetrotting adventure. He went on to coach the national teams of the Philippines, Mauritius, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Iran, Bahrain, Iraq, Malawi, Jordan, Fiji and Libya.

What's more he also had spells coaching club sides in Norway, Tanzania, and India. Simply put - his passport should be in a museum.

His stint with Team Melli was brief as he was in charge against Australia in the playoff matches against Australia for the 1974 World Cup qualification.

McLennan's team collapsed against the Aussies in Sydney and were virtually eliminated there and then when Team Melli lost 3-0.

The return, however saw one of the greatest performance by Team Melli when they were 2-0 up in the first half an hour goals scored by Ghleechkhani. But it was not to be as that result was the final one and Iran was eliminated in the last hurdle.

McLennan was in charge in another two matches before he left Iran in 1975. McLennan passed away on 11 May 2004.
