Strachan: No Time Limit On Decision

11 October 2015, 06:29

Gordon Strachan will "speak to a few people'' before he makes a decision about his Scotland future.

The national team manager's contract ends after the final 2016 Euro qualifier against Gibraltar in Faro on Sunday night.

The Group D encounter is a dead rubber after the Scots exited the competition with a 2-2 draw against Poland at Hampden Park on Thursday night, where afterwards he refused to discuss the topic.

Speaking at the Estadio Algarve stadium - where neither side could train on Saturday due to the rain - he said: ``I have always said wait until the end of the campaign and that is on Sunday.

"But don't expect me to be speaking right after the game.

"Tomorrow we get the game out the way and then sit down and have a look.

"I think there are two or three people I need to speak to make sure everything is clear and then we will take it from there.

"There is not a time limit on it. There is plenty of time and lots to do in the next 24 hours, a training session, and video analysis, speak to the players, so it is a busy time.

"But I have got to say it is an incredible experience, it is a job that makes you so proud.

"I know during the campaign there have been many performances that made the nation happy.

"I don't think the nation are angry in any way, I think they are disappointed for the group of players who have put so much in.

"It is a wonderful, wonderful thing to make the nation happy, like the (Scotland) rugby - it is a happy nation and group of young men have done that. We hope to make the nation happy quite soon.''
