On This Day: Happy Birthday to ex-Celtic boss Gordon Strachan

Happy Birthday to former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan. The ex-Aberdeen, Man Utd and Leeds player turns 67 today.

Strachan was a success at Celtic having won 3 League Titles in four years at Celtic, as well as winning 2 League Cups and 1 Scottish Cup. His teams were extremely successful owing to being well drilled. However, they were often criticised for being a bit too pragmatic.

During his four years with Celtic, Strachan oversaw 182 games – winning 122 of those games. As Celtic boss, Strachan oversaw back-to-back Champions League Last 16 appearances. He is remembered as a good Celtic Manager, even at the time he may have been underappreciated. Given the calamity that was Tony Mowbray’s tenure, there was an appreciation for what Strachan achieved, especially in Europe.

After leaving Celtic, Strachan had spells as manager with Middlesbrough and Scotland and now works in the Director of Football role at Dundee.
