Gordon Strachan

Clubs played for: Manchester United, Leeds United, Coventry City (1984-1997).

Born: 1957

Birthplace: Edinburgh, Scotland

Position: Midfielder

Biography: A real Fans' Favourite, the little red haired Scotsman was ironically sold to United by his future manager, Alex Ferguson, for £600,000 as a replacement for Ray Wilkins. Together they had previously contributed to Aberdeen's period of domination north of the border. Once at Old Trafford, they both more than made their mark. Strachan scored 15 goals in his first season which also produced an FA Cup winner's medal, and he produced a sackful of memorable displays in the following years until his surprise departure for Leeds United in March 1989, in a £300,000 deal. The Scottish international managed Coventry and Southampton before taking Celtic to three league titles in the four years he was in charge. Has been Middlesbrough's boss since October 2009 and worked as a media pundit when in between jobs.

Strachan, Gordon Saw him in a red Polo in Salford, on my way to Uni. Girls in the next car were waving and he waved back. I was in a black, Nissan Cherry GL coupe Gordon. This was 1988. You may remember me, only 35 years ago
