Under fire boss receives backing from most welcome of Celtic sources

The Celtic fans in the Transfer Tavern cannot stop thinking about their imminent doubleheader with Bayern Munich in the Champions League. 

Indeed, the Bhoys in our bar are confident Brendan Rodgers’ men can pull off a shock against the German giants and enjoy some success, spearheaded by Leigh Griffiths.

Unlike the Scottish national side.

The forward is a hugely popular figure for both club and country, despite the fact he wasn’t selected by Tartan Army boss Gordon Strachan for the first few games, one of the major reasons why Scotland failed to qualify for the World Cup again, according to most of the punters in our bar.

Still, with quotes sourced by BBC Sport, the 27-year-old has backed Strachan to continue in his role ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers. While the two have previously endured a rather difficult relationship, the former Wolves and Hibs striker backed his national boss to carry on.

“I don’t think there’s any man better for the job,” said Griffiths when asked about the future of the head coach.

“You’ve seen the last few performances, we are a team pulling in the right direction – we’re unbeaten in 2017.”

Landlord’s Verdict:

To be fair to Strachan, Scotland are unbeaten in 2017. Also, who to replace him? David Moyes or Malky Mackay barely inspire any confidence.
