Watch: Gordon Strachan's Hilarious Response To Awkward Sky Sports Question
By Mikey Traynor

Sky Sports' post-match interviewers have a tendency to ask some blunt and awkward questions at a time when the person in front of the microphone may not be in the best mood to answer them.

Geoff Shreeves is famous for blurting out questions that baffle the interviewee, and you can tell when they have been instructed to force a question for a particular narrative regardless of how the other individual will react.

That's what happened when Scotland manager Gordon Strachan spoke to Sky in the moments after Scotland secured an 87th minute winner in a must win home qualifier against Slovenia.

After a peacful interview where Strachan sang the praises of Chris Martin, Scotland's match winner who was booed by the frustrated fans when he was brought on as a substitute for not having translated his goalscoring form in the Championship to the international stage, a question about wee Gordon's own criticism saw an hilarious response.

Was I?

Jesus! I never knew that, well thanks very much for that, that's really hurt me.

Thanks very much, so I must go home now and have a wee cry to myself.

What a man.

That was a big night for Strachan, who would have been so relieved to see the goal go in, and it was a decent one as well:

Scotland dominated the game and had it ended 0-0 it would have been an injustice as many chances were created and it was starting to look as if it was going to be one of those nights.

That win puts the Scots back in the mix for second place in Group F.
