Gordon Strachan set to decide on Scotland future

Gordon StrachanGordon Strachan is set to decide on his future in charge of Scotland following their failure to qualify for next summer's European Championships.

The Tartan Army's hopes of progressing were ended in heartbreaking fashion last Thursday after they leaked in a last-gasp equaliser at home to Poland.

Strachan's troops at least ended the campaign on a high after battering whipping-boys Gibraltar 6-0 in their final match, although that will be of little consolation.

  • Scotland's last major tournament appearance was the 1998 World Cup.
  • The Tartan Army last qualified for a European Championship back in 1996.

Strachan has been in charge of the national team since January 2013, and has since won four, drawn five and lost eight of his dozen games at the helm. The 58-year-old will be crushed at failing to lead his troops through to Euro 2016, and will now take time to reflect before making a decision on his future.

Scotland begin their 2018 Word Cup qualifying campaign on 4 September in a group (F) which contains old foes England, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lithuania and Malta. Ladbrokes have handed the Hampden Park outfit odds of 5/1 (Ladbrokes) to progress to their first major tournament in 20 years.
