Scotland confirm Strachan as new manager

Gordon Strachan has been confirmed as the new manager of Scotland. The former Celtic and Middlesbrough boss replaces Craig Levein, who was sacked in November.

"I'm very proud but also my family are proud. The time is right for me to be able to take a job like this," he said after his appointment was announced.

"There'll be rough times but I hope there'll be good times too.

"Every club you go to there's always challenges but this is the first time the challenges are in front of a nation.

"If you can be successful you can make a nation happy and make a nation proud and that is the priority for me to be able to do that with help from other people.

"I have the experience, I like working with people, I like dealing with people and I like trying to make people better."
