I couldn't watch Scotland vs Holland because I was so upset someone else was doing my job - Gordon Strachan
When it ended Gordon
Strachan was numb inside.
He needed a holiday. A quick getaway to Palm Springs where he could lick his wounds in some Californian sunshine.
What he didn’t need was anything that reminded him of the life he was leaving behind.
Or, to be more accurate, the one from which he had just been so forcibly evicted.
A life spent in the hard-knock world of professional football should have prepared him for this moment. But even a man of all his experience hadn’t seen this one coming. Not really.
