After the Scottish national team drew 2-2 with Slovenia, ending all hope of the team making it to the World Cup 2018 play-offs, we asked Courier readers if they thought Gordon Strachan should remain as manager.

The national team missed out on second place in Group F on goal difference following last night’s match, where a win was essential.

And head coach Strachan refused to be drawn on questions surrounding his future in the role.

A total of 277 people have so far taken part in The Courier’s poll, which asked: “Should Gordon Strachan remain as Scotland manager?”

Of this tally 165 people (59.57%) wanted him to resign. A further 112 (40.43%) thought he should stay on.

Scotland fans and football pundits also had their say on social media, with former Celtic man Chris Sutton among the most outspoken critics of Strachan’s tactics in the qualifying matches.

However the issue of whether he should remain as head coach split opinion.

Strachan also came under fire for claiming the national is genetically “behind”, with players not physically imposing enough to match their Slovenian counterparts.
