Boro seek new manager after Strachan survives less than a year

Gordon Strachan's reign as Middlesbrough manager came to an end last night a few days short of a year since he replaced Gareth Southgate. Strachan won just 13 of the 46 games for which he was in charge despite his side being installed as pre-season favourites to win promotion back to the Premier League. Speculation over the former Celtic manager's future had been circulating for several weeks, and that grew yesterday when he cancelled his press conference ahead of tonight's match at Nottingham Forest, although the official reason was that he was ill.
