Strachan: Sunderland's Fletcher improves every team he plays for

Scotland coach Gordon Strachan has hailed the quality of Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher.

Strachan says Fletcher improves every team he's involved with. He declared: "Wherever Steven has gone, he has made teams better.

"When he was at Hibs he made them a better side - and it's been the same at Burnley, Wolves, Sunderland; he had a terrific season for Sunderland last season until he got injured playing for us.

"He has that quality to make a squad and a team better. No, I haven't had much of a chance to work with him.

"But listen, I know he can do it. There's no question about that. It's great working with good players. It is fantastic as a coach to see really good players working. When you see class players training, it's great. And Steven has added to that.

"You watch him today and the way he comes to the ball and glides with it when he has got it. He is comfortable with the ball and is at one with the ball when it comes to him. It's great."
