Scotland boss Strachan: I won't patronise Moyes

Scotland coach Gordon Strachan refused to comment on the sacking of Manchester United boss David Moyes this week.

Strachan, who played for United in the 1980s, was at Hampden to reveal the four nominees for the PFA Scotland manager of the year award.

"I have been watching the television the last 24 hours and everyone has an opinion on David and I think David will be delighted that I am of the opinion that I am going to say nothing about it," said the former Celtic boss.

"As a manager you don't want to patronise, and I don't want to speak about something you don't know too much about so it will be a relief for David for someone to actually be quiet and he can get on with life.

"If I was David Moyes, I would like everybody, unless you know exactly what has happened, just to be quiet because you will end up patronising him and that is not what he wants."
