Griffiths: Strachan is '100%' the best man for Scotland
The striker backed Gordon Strachan to continue as boss after World Cup 2018 failure.
Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths has said that he wants Gordon Strachan to continue as national team boss despite the team failing to reach the World Cup 2018 play-offs.
A 2-2 draw in Slovenia ended the team's hopes of reaching a first major finals since France 1998 and with Strachan's contract coming to an end the managers future is in question.
Griffiths, who scored to give Scotland the lead in Ljubljana, said there was no doubt in his mind that he wanted Strachan to stay on and lead the bid to reach Euro 2020.
"100%," he said. "There's no better man for the job."
The striker rued the defensive lapses that let Slovenia back into the match and take the lead before a late Scotland fightback that fell short at the end.
"It's always difficult," he said. "We got so close and just failed at that last bit.
"Just a little bit of a lapse of concentration for those two crosses.
"If we're defending well then we've always got attacking threat at the other end of the park and it showed with us still going and getting the equaliser and pushing to get the winner."
