With the Scottish FA confirming that Gordon Strachan has left his post as manager this afternoon, Scotland fans have been rejoicing the news on Twitter.
While Strachan lead the country to the brink of a World Cup qualifying play-off spot, his side fell brutally short with a 2-2 draw against Slovenia on Sunday.
And while Scotland only dropped two points on their final four games, the majority of fans were keen to see a new man at the helm following three failed campaigns under Strachan.
The 60-year-old’s critics eventually got their wish today, as the former Celtic boss left Hampden along with his assistant Mark McGhee:

Thanks for the effort Gordon Strachan but we do need a change to make us better.
Good luck in the future. pic.twitter.com/7E7iqYcgWR

Strachan had to go for his loyalty to duds, stubbornness, lack of tactics and failure to play/select in form players

Strachan gone ? time to start giving chances to those in form & youngsters rather than the same deadweight & failures

Ex-Everton manager David Moyes and current SFA Performance Director Malky Mackay have been installed as early favourites to succeed Strachan.
What are your thoughts on who the SFA should turn towards now that the job is available?
