Strawberry root rot

Hey guys! How are you all doing today?
So I recently acquired some strawberry plants,but I’m not sure what to think of the roots,are they normal or should I cut off the black parts?

I suspect the plant is more than one year old, and that is the reason for dark roots.
Gift plants form others do carry some risk of virus and disease.

Thanks blue! So old roots tend to darken over time? Should they be pruned or can I pot it?

I think I’d just plant…and next year as it puts forth runner plants, just let them root and remove the old plant then…(or not if it is healthy).

Thanks a lot heheh
