Gordon Strachan insists Scotland have not made special plans for Wales ace Gareth Bale
GORDON Strachan refused to be drawn on whether he has made any special plans for Gareth Bale ahead of Wales's World Cup qualifier in Scotland tonight.
Bale has stolen the show ahead of this evening's match, but Strachan reckons Scottish preparations have centred on his own side.
"From the first day I was in management, you know that no matter who you are playing against, everyone has strengths and weaknesses," said the former Middlesbrough boss.
"We have made people aware of where there might be danger.

"The players will tell you what we have been working on is a lot to do with what is in our dressing room.
"The thing is, when the players are in the dressing room tomorrow, they know they can trust each other."
The games is Strachan's first competitive international in charge of his country.
But former Wales international Mickey Thomas reckons this is the worst Scotland team of all time.
"I played with Mickey and it is a bold statement," said Strachan.
"To validate that you would need to be about 150 years old and I know Mickey is looking a bit old, but not 150 years old.
Strachan joked: "In saying that, he is liable to have a passport that says 150 years on it...
"Mickey is always good fun whenever you meet him so I take it with a pinch of salt.
"But he has definitely livened up the Scottish media for the last day or so."
