Strachan Leaves Middlesbrough

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 18 October 2010, 17:44

Middlesbrough have parted company with manager Gordon Strachan after less than twelve months in charge at the Riverside Stadium with the Scotsman tearing up his contract and walking away without compensation!

A statement on the club's website read that the change was made following Boro's poor start to the season in the npower Championship with Chairman, Steve Gibson, adding "Gordon has torn up his contract and walked away without compensation because he thought it was in the best interest for the club".

The search will now begin for Strachan's replacement with the team languishing at the wrong end of the Championship table after 11 games following high pre-season expectation which saw Boro as the bookmakers favourites to win the division. The former Celtic manager took over from Gareth Southgate just under 12 months ago and has won just 13 of his 46 games in charge and spent over £5 million during the summer transfer.

Tony Mowbray is the early favourite to become just the fifth permanent manager at the Riverside since Steve Gibson took control 16 years ago and the former West Brom and Celtic manager, who made almost 400 appearances as a player for the Teeside club during a nine year spell is 2/7 with Ladbrokes to return to the club where he started his career. Phil Brown and Alan Curbishley are also early front runners but at the odds, it would appear that Mowbray could be a done deal.
