The former Scotland manager is the latest guest on Open Goal’s Si Ferry Meets and spoke for an hour about his career starting in Dundee and ending with the national team.
He covers playing for Dundee, Aberdeen and Manchester United before going on to speak about taking over as Celtic manager.
And it’s while speaking about the Hoops job that Strachan reveals the moment he found out Rangers fans referred to him as Chesney.
In case you don’t know who Chesney is, it’s a character played by actor Sam Aston in ITV’s Coronation Street.
Strachan told Ferry how it was during a defeat to Rangers that he realised their fans called him Chesney – something some still use to refer to him now.
Telling open-goal.co.uk, Strachan said: “That was the first time I realised my name with the Rangers fans was Chesney. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know who Chesney was.
“It was 2-0 I think and I heard ‘Chesney, Chesney, what’s the score?’ and Tommy [Burns], no matter what happened, he always found the funny side of it and said stupid things at the wrong times.
“So I’m looking about and Tam came up, I said ‘Tam, what do you want to do? We’re down 2-0, what should we do? There are 15 minutes to go?’
“We actually scored to make it 2-1 and I said, ‘have you got anything in your locker?’ and he said, ‘not really’.
“I says ‘by the way, who is this Chesney?’ and he went ‘that’s you’. I said ‘who’s Chesney?’ and he said ‘the guy out Coronation Street’.
“So we’re talking about Chesney from Coronation Street when we’re 2-1 down. Very good, Tam.”
