Everton's Naismith: Scotland fans will love Strachan

Everton star Steven Naismith is confident that the Tartan Army will love new Scotland boss Gordon Strachan.

Writing in his column for SunSport, the former Rangers ace believes that the Scotland fans will get right behind the ex-Celtic boss who has taken over from Craig Levein.

"I'm sure the Tartan Army will love him. He was such a successful Scotland player," wrote Naismith.

"They will recall him playing for his country at major finals - at a time when Scotland qualified time and again.

"He knows what it takes to get there having lived through it as a player. He'll want to pass on those experiences to our squad and help us get back to those days.

"The SFA couldn't have picked a better candidate as he's shown he has what it takes.

"I don't remember much of his playing heyday but in more recent times I've watched his analysis as a TV pundit.

"He talks a lot of sense and you can always relate to what he says.

"You always understand what he's trying to get across. He makes things sound simple.

"As a player, that's great. All you can ask of a boss is to make his instructions easy to understand.

"I'm excited by the chance to work with him. I think the fans will be excited to watch the team play."
