The Scottish FA is seeking a new kit supplier for the national side after manufacturer Diadora went into liquidation.
Around 172 workers at Italian sportswear company Diadora SpA, which is being taken over by the founder and chairman of shoe retailer Geox SpA, are set to lose their jobs according to local media reports.
The Italian company's deal runs until 2010 and Scotland will wear the Diadora shirts until the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign.
Diadora has paid its £1m annual contract up to the end of this year.
Shorthouse said: "Obviously, we've been made aware that Diadora UK has gone into receivership.
"We have an agreement with Diadora that takes us through to the end of the World Cup campaign, so Scotland will still play the next few games in the current home kit."
The SFA has already met other potential sponsors about a new deal, Shorthouse added.
"We're in a good position because Scotland fans are extremely loyal to their national team and buy the shirts in huge numbers.
"We're an attractive proposition to other companies and are very confident this will be sorted out.
"It's a shame for the guys at Diadora, who have been great partners with us over the past six years."
