Griffiths made his full international debut under Strachan – albeit after he persisted with the likes of Chris Martin, Steven Naismith and Stephen Fletcher.

Griffiths wrote how the former Hoops boss “would have taken us to the euros in 2020” had he signed a new deal and that there’s “not a better man for the job” in his eyes:
Is Griffiths right to stand by his now former manager?
Or do his comments immediately increase the pressure on whoever is chosen to succeed the 60-year-old?
Either way, have a look at our top contenders for the job, here.
