I Have A Dream
Gordon Strachan sets out what he sees as his plan for the future
Scotland manager Gordon Strachan aims to produce a new crop of Scotland football heroes again - but admits that this will take time. He has a vision of how he wants Scotland to play but he does not currently have players available and eligible with the necessary "intelligence or physique" to allow this to be realised.He said: "I took this job because I want to do something to put something back. It's not a platform to do something else. I've been lucky and it's time to put something back. I'm trying to give heroes back to the Scottish people as there were when I was growing up. We don't have too many now. I want to bring through two or three young men who can be heroes in the future. We are getting better and even if it puts in a platform for someone to take over in years to come that would be great. To get it right I may have to get a few slaps from the public or press and I have a vision of how I want to play but at the moment we don't have players with the intelligence or physique to do that. I'm hoping in the next four or five years we can get two or three."Strachan also outlined his belief that the Old Firm clubs will be part of a European super league in 10 years' time. Speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester. He said "I don't think they will move to the English Premier League. I think there will be two European leagues in 10 years' time or so and then Celtic and Rangers will be in it. That's the way I think it will go. It's not the SFA's opinion, it's my opinion - I think 38 (European) clubs will break away and make two divisions and the owners will do everything they can to get the sponsorship and TV money there. That's the way I think Celtic and Rangers will eventually go, and we have to make sure Scottish football is in a healthy position before we get to that point."
