Gordon Strachan to stay on as Scotland boss


 

Gordon Strachan will continue as Scotland manager, with the 58-year-old signing a two-year contract extension.

He will lead them in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers having been heartened by the support he received from Tartan Army fans.

Strachan, who succeeded Craig Levein in January 2013, said: "It is an honour and a privilege to manage my country.

"And, in a way, that has made the disap­po­in­tment of not qualifying for Euro 2016 all the more profound."

Scotland finished fourth in their qualifying group and miss out on next year's finals in France.
