WATCH: Gordon Strachan is Maltese cross in “Tell Rodney to get a f*****g move on or I’m off!” video

As many a Scottish sports reporter will attest, Gordon Strachan has never been the easiest of interviewees.

Plenty have found themselves falling victim to the Scotland manager’s impatience, but Strachan’s famous temper has now gone international in a video following Sunday’s World Cup qualifier in Malta.

The footage shows an increasingly irascible Strachan waiting as Maltese TV tries to co-ordinate a handover from the studio to a live interview.

We don’t know who Rodney is, but many fans have accused Strachan of behaving like a plonker while representing Scotland abroad.

Gordon Steel said: “That’s an embarrassment to Scotland – it’s not like we’re world beaters.”

William Hannah added: “If he was as good a manager as he was arrogant, we would have been at the euros and won it.”

But Bryan Mulgrew added: “If they want to interview him they should be ready. Met him briefly once and he couldn’t have been any friendlier.”

 

Talking football

The video is just the latest addition to Strachan’s greatest hits. Here are some more times he put the media in their place.
