SFA set to discuss Strachan's future


By Gavin McCafferty

Gordon Strachan's future as Scotland manager is to be discussed at a Scottish Football Association board meeting tomorrow.

The Scotland boss is out of contract next month but is facing mounting pressure from fans to call time on his five-year reign.

With no competitive action until the new Uefa Nations League kicks off next September, SFA chief Stewart Regan said the board will not be rushed into making a decision on Strachan's future.

Regan said: "Everyone is disappointed with how the campaign ended.

"But we now need time to reflect on the campaign and discuss it as a board. We're not going to make any knee-jerk decisions.

"I've already had a chat with the manager and we've discussed it and I've said to him we'll be discussing things as a board.

"I don't think it would be fair on him or fair on us to make any snap judgement. We'll just reflect on it and when we're ready we'll make a call on what happens next.

"When that happens, it's hard to say.

"I don't want there to be a stopwatch ticking on any decision. We don't want that as an organisation and we don't want to put pressure on Gordon."
