His Scotland managerial reign may only be three games old but Gordon Strachan is already thinking about the legacy he wants to leave.
Strachan’s Scottish side are out of the 2014 World Cup reckoning after recording just two draws from six qualifying matches meaning they have to start thinking about the future after another failed major tournament campaign.
Strachan is aware that things need to change and he is now planning to leave his role, whenever that may be, at least with a strong heritage.
“That’s not just the next campaign, but for the next three or four years,” he said.
“If I can leave with a legacy of good players, and a half decent system, then that’ll be fine by me.
“The players have an opportunity to look at it now and say ‘Let’s be ready for what’s to come’.”
