Still got us closer than we’ve been in a long time” @rfcjw of­fered: “Good news – Gor­don Stra­chan is gone. Bad news – David Moyes will prob­a­bly take over” @brave­heart­lynch com­mented: “I think a lot of the play­ers will be dis­ap­pointed at Gor­don Stra­chan’s de­par­ture. Some­thing that should have been taken into ac­count” @Ni­co­las­tur­geon added: “My best wishes to Gor­don Stra­chan. Scot­land manger is never an easy job, but he de­serves our thanks for his ser­vice” @Den­nynews said: “The SFA should se­ri­ously con­sider John Lam­bie for the Scot­land job”
