Wigan Athletic captain Gary Caldwell is confident that Gordon Strachan is the man to revive the Scotland national team.

The former Celtic gaffer was appointed by the Scottish Football Association last week as replacement for Craig Levein, who was sacked in November, and Latics centre-back Caldwell believes they have got the right manager.

"I had a great relationship with him at Celtic and spent three great years with him,” he said.

"He's a great choice for Scotland and I think he was the only choice, really, when you see the people who were up for it. He was definitely the stand-out choice and I'm glad the SFA have got him.

"He will bring a real passion to Scotland. You could see in his press conference how proud he was to get the job, it means a lot to him."
