Speaking on ITV, the Scotland manager reminded everyone involved in football that the game has no morals.
According to Strachan:
We don’t have any morals in football, let’s get that right. We have none.
Because the whole of the years I’ve played football, there have been wife batterers, drunken driving incidents, infidelity, there have been Eric Cantona jumping in the crowd and kung-fuing somebody in the chest and the club stand by them.
And the supporters themselves, when these guys come back, they stand up and applaud them on the pitch.
So don’t anybody start talking about morals, because we don’t have any in football.”
Strachan also claims that if a youth team player was caught doing some of the above he would be fired.
It’s an outstanding point from the former Coventry, Southampton, Celtic and Middlesbrough boss, who has been a stand-out pundit during the World Cup.
