Video: Gordon Strachan Jokes About Robert Snodgrass Being a Bad Influence on Andy Robertson

Gordon Strachan joked about Robert Snodgrass being a bad influence on Andy Robertson for Scotland.

The Liverpool full-back was this week made captain of the national team by Alex McLeish, reward for his fine form for club and country over recent years.

And a good man to give his opinion on that decision is former Scotland boss Strachan, who handed Robertson his international debut back in 2014.

Since then, the former Dundee United and Queen’s Park left-back has went on to make 21 more appearances for Scotland, while earning a move to Premier League giants Liverpool.

It was no real surprise McLeish chose to hand him the captaincy.

And while everyone has been praising the conduct of Robertson on and off the pitch, including Strachan, the ex-Tartan Army boss joked that he’s a good example until he’s around team-mate Snodgrass:

Strachan was appearing on Sky Sports’ The Debate last night and had plenty to say about Robertson if you’re able to watch it back on demand.

Robertson will lead Scotland out for the first time against Belgium at Hampden on Friday night.
