Gordon Strachan feeling the heat after Scotland’s shocker in Slovakia

Gordon Strachan’s future in charge of the Scotland national team has been hurled into doubt following Tuesday’s shocking 3-0 defeat to Slovakia in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

In the build-up to the match the former Celtic striker Chris Sutton publicly criticised Strachan (see video), claiming that he looks as if he no longer wants the Scotland job.

"He has been rude, he's been cantankerous and I just feel he doesn't want to be there any more and he is showing that in every interview."

On Saturday Scotland were booed off the pitch after a lacklustre 1-1 draw at home to Lithuania, while the travelling Tartan Army support once again vented their frustration last night following Scotland’s abysmal showing in Slovakia.

The dismal defeat leaves struggling Scotland down in 4th in Group F after three qualifying games, with the country’s only victory so far coming against minnows Malta.

As a result Strachan is feeling the heat and should his troops flop in their next match against fierce rivals England on 11th November, then a managerial change could well be made, either with the Scottish FA forcing one, or Strachan himself calling it quits.

The out-of-work Paul Lambert is currently the 3/1 favourite (Bet Victor) in the Next Scotland Manager Market, with the likes of Derek McInnes, David Moyes, Joe Jordan and Steve Clarke also featuring in the betting.
