Malta take on Scotland on Sunday 4th September, 2016, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
Gordon Strachan has proven down the years that his strongest attribute as a manager is pithy answers to mundane questions from journalists. Apparently that marked him out as the outstanding candidate for the Scotland manager’s job, and he took full advantage by failing to qualify for a European Championship that even Northern Ireland were good enough to be at this summer just gone.
Now, he starts again, against the might of Malta, and if he loses here even a yogurt based pun might not be enough to save his skin, or job, when he faces the old blazers in charge of the Scottish FA.
