Boro announce Southgate’s successor days after everyone already knew about it! Expect post match interviews at the Riverside to be far more fun from now on.
Middlesbrough have appointed Gordon Strachan as their new manager.

Well that was the worst kept secret in a long time. It has been known for some days that Mr. Strachan was to take the reins at the Riverside but for some reason this couldn’t be officially announced until today, but there you have it.
Quite how Boro will recover from the loss of such a tactical and managerial genius like Gareth Southgate is unknown but I am sure they will muddle by. I am of course being incredibly sarcastic. Gordon Strachan is a proven success of a boss. He has been there and done it. Expect the Scot to be linked with a myriad of Celtic players come January!
