Scotland was on the wrong end of a 3-0 thumping in their opening European qualifier against Kazakhstan midweek. The Scots are playing away again today to San Marino where anything but three points could see a wielded axe heading towards their management team.
At the final whistle, James McFadden and Callum McGregor seemed to of had some issue after an on-field bust-up. As it turned out the bust-up was over another player. Scott McTominay walked down the tunnel after the final whistle without facing the Tartan Army. McGregor took issue with this as the Celt is well used to show his fans respect, win lose or draw. Speaking with the Scotsman on the issue McFadden said:
“When I came off somebody said to me there had been a bust-up. There was no such thing. I get on really well with Callum. He was just frustrated one of the players had run off without the full explanation. There is no issue with Callum”.
In the last decade, Scotland has been able to rely on a large contingent of Celtic players making the first team but still, they have failed to qualify for any major competitions. Any slip-up today against San Marino is unthinkable and will end any prospects of progression very early in the campaign.
Kieran Tierney will not be available after he travelled back to Scotland from Kazakhstan with an injury. It is still not clear if he will make the Glasgow Derby Sunday week.
