Scott Brown labels Gordon Strachan's Scotland exit a 'sad, sad, sad day'

Strachan's side could only draw 2-2 in Slovenia and so missed out on a play-off spot

Last week Scotland had the chance to make the play-offs for the World Cup finals, but they were held to a 2-2 draw in Slovenia, when a victory would have given them second place.

Scotland paid the price for a poor start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, with a 2-2 draw in Slovenia in the final round of fixtures not enough to secure them a play-off for a place at next year's event in Russian Federation.

"I also disappointed at missing the play-off".

Strachan left today after failing to guide Scotland to the World Cup. And the players should be given enormous credit for the resilience which came back from a hard start.

A statement read: "The board of the Scottish FA and Gordon Strachan have agreed that the Scotland national team will be led by a new head coach in preparation for the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying campaign".

The Scots have not featured in a major tournament since the World Cup in France 19 years ago.

"Together we have shared some really magical moments and those memories will live with me for ever".

The SFA announced Strachan's departure after a board meeting at Glasgow's Hampden Park.

Strachan paid tribute to Scotland's fans' "unwavering support" and thanked his back-room staff and "everyone at the Scottish FA".

SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said: "After nearly five years the Board felt it was time for a new direction to prepare for the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign and also the forthcoming UEFA Nations League".

Former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes has been out of work since losing his job at Sunderland in the summer, after they were relegated to the Championship in May.
