Middlesbrough have confirmed the appointment of Gordon Strachan as their new manager.

The former Celtic boss, 52, succeeds Gareth Southgate, who was sacked last week despite Boro being just one point off the top of the Coca-Cola Championship.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Gordon Strachan will be unveiled as Boro's new manager at a press conference at the Riverside at 2.30pm on Monday."
