Last updated : 09 January 2010 By Boro Mad

Gordon Strachan: "We are trying hard to bring in people who can lead and people who want to be led.

"I want to bring in leaders and men - that's hugely important now. I have to have people who I know, players I know who are men, who are leaders, and who know about playing at this level.

"There will not be any foreigners coming in this time, that's for sure. We have to add that wee bit of enthusiasm and knowledge."

"Everyone plays games and wants to get the best deal they can for their club. It's brinkmanship - we will see how it goes."

The Record reports that deals for  Gary Caldwell and Barry Robson are just about complete.
