Alex Rowley says the idea that he would stand is rubbish.
A leadership challenge, he says, is not on the cards.
Neal Findlay is one of Mr Corbyn's closest allies in Scotland,
He stood in the last Scottish leadership election
We asked if he would consider standing again.
Kezia Dugdale has a large mandate to lead the Scottish Labour Party.

They were called "legal highs" but are now very much "illegal
highs" and the police say that a change in the law three months ago
banning their sale and distribution is having a "significant effect."
But some say the new laws on psychoactive substances
could actually be causing further problems.
Our home affairs correspondent, Reevel Alderson, reports.
three months ago that name is no longer appropriate.
New psychoactive substances can no longer be sold legally and importing
Police Scotland say the new law has had a significant effect.
Before it, there were 90 retailers selling the drugs across Scotland
and now there are none, with premises closed,
Police say there have been no arrests for offences under the act
but they admit that they know it is still going on.
There is a small minority of premises that are a persistent
and resistant element continuing to sell them.
That falls within the realms of the legislation, so the police
and our partners will robustly target those individuals
and we would encourage them to cease selling.
The problem in the past was that legal highs could be easily
chemically altered to help overcome any legal ban.
The new legislation has been designed to overcome that.
But in Ireland, where there is a similar law,
consumption of new psychoactive substances has actually risen
That is concerning this drugs awareness charity in Edinburgh,
which fears that driving the sale of the streets might actually cause
When these were on open sale was shocking to people but the fact
that they were on open sale was perhaps suggesting incorrectly

Now that they are banned, I suppose the worry is that there
If these are sold online, or through traditional drug dealing
networks, we feel the price will go up and there is more
The charity and police are warning users that buying the drugs online
from overseas brings a risk of prosecution as it could be
classed as importing them, which is prohibited
Drivers in Edinburgh look likely to be asked to stay away
The city's council has been piloting a scheme which bans vehicles
from some areas to try and cut accidents and promote walking.
Edinburgh's experiment with traffic movement around schools
At nine of them, drivers were told they could not
The result, confusion and frayed tempers.
Nearly one year on, Edinburgh City Council says
the scheme delivered real benefits, not least for children,
many of whom now walk to and from school.
It means signs like this are set to become a permanent feature
But are all the drivers obeying the rules?
This is another school that asked to take part in the pilot.
When school finished at lunchtime today, some drivers were clearly
I got a phone call to pick up my friend's child,
because she is stuck in traffic, she is late.
The police have been at the top of the road and they
A report on the pilot scheme goes before the Transport Committee
on Tuesday with a recommendation that it becomes permanent.
One walking charity says all local authorities should consider adopting
the scheme, but they will need to act tough.
It can be soft to begin with but now we are one year on and parents
should know the drill and it probably needs somebody to pick up
people, possibly just warning them and going
Edinburgh Council says that peer pressure might help.
Parents are frustrated with those they cannot get onside,
those who park on yellow lines and on corners.
It is a minority who spoil it being a safe area for young

Let's get the weekend weather outlook now from Christopher.
Good evening. It was the case of sunshine and showers today and a few
rainbows around as well. Our weather Watch is taking plenty of pictures.
There's showers fade tonight and tomorrow very little in terms of
weather going on. Dry, fairly cloudy, but we have this weather
front producing outbreaks of rain that will move north towards
Midlands. In Scotland, a generally dry start, some brightness around at
times and a few spots of rain in the south-west extending up to the
north-west and perhaps one or two lighter spots in the central belt by
mid-afternoon. Across the UK, that is where the real action is. You can
see this plume of white weather from of the wash down to Dorset. It will
be wet. For most of Wales and northern England and Northern
Ireland, cloudy. Similar for us. Temperatures up to 19-20 with the
chance of some rain at times, nuisance value than anything else.
Across the West, spots of rain here but generally dry. The far north
Northern Isles, or and Shetland, best chances of sunshine for you. In
the evening, fairly dry. And then to Sunday we have a ridge of high
pressure in the Atlantic and the wet weather pulling away towards
Scandinavia. For us, and other dry day after a damp start. Certainly
for the North and South. Through the afternoon, drying up with sunny
weather pushing in from the West Coast. Look at the north-east and
south-east, heavy downpours likely at times. That is the forecast for
now. From everyone on the late team
here in Glasgow and around
