Scotland failed to make it to the World Cup play-offs after being held to a 2-2 with Slovenia on Sunday, with the Tartan Army immediately calling for Strachan to leave his post.
However, with Scotland having finished the campaign strongly – dropping just two points in four games – it wasn’t a forgone conclusion that the ex-Celtic boss would be departing.
With Strachan refusing to be drawn on his future following the draw in Ljubljana, speculation has been rife as to who will be in control of the team over the long-term.
Luckily, White has stepped in and confirmed via an anonymous source that the 60-year-old’s time in the hotseat is up:

The Scottish FA have since confirmed White’s Tweet via their social media channels:

Where do you fall on the Strachan debate?
Was it wrong to sack a man who brought the country so close to a play-off spot?
Or is three failed campaigns enough to warrant Strachan’s departure?
