Profile:
Full Name: Gordon David Strachan

The "wee man" as he was affectionately known to the Aberdeen support, joined the Dons in an exchange deal that took Jim Shirra to Dundee with a 40,000 cash adjustment. Dons boss Billy McNeill brought off the deal that was to prove crucial to Aberdeen success. Strachan went on to become a vital part of the Aberdeen side, with a rare talent to easily trick his way past opponents. Capped for Scotland on 50 occasions, Strachan joined Manchester United in 1984 in a 600,000 move. Played for Scotland at two World Cups, and also enjoyed considerable success with Manchester Utd, Leeds and Coventry. Strachan took over as Coventry boss before moving to Southampton. Recently decided to part company with the Saints.
