Gordon Strachan

Where is Gordon Strachan now?

Gordon Strachan finally retired from playing whilst in a player coach role at Coventry City at the age of 40, a record at the time for an outfield Premier League player.

When current manager Ron Atkinson moved to director of football at Coventry, Strachan was promoted to manager where he stayed for five years before getting the sack after increasing pressure from the fans.

Within weeks Strachan had returned to management with Southampton and after turning round the team’s performances he left after three years to spend more time with his family.

Gordon Strachan was back in football in 2005 with Celtic where he enjoyed considerable success but left in 2009 after failing to win the league title.

In 2009 Strachan was appointed manager of Middlesbrough in the Championship but left after a year due to a string of poor results.

After three years out of the managerial game where he was often seen as a TV pundit, Gordon Strachan was appointed as manager of the Scottish national team in 2013 replacing Craig Levein.

Gordon Strachan is also director of the Strachan Football Foundation which is a community interest company, non for profit organisation with the focus of developing the football community, schools and local football clubs.

In 2016 Strachan was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.
