Scott Bain

As you might have expected, the goalie had little actual goalkeeping to do bar one or two moments, which I may have imagined, when San Marino were allowed a shot at goal. 5 (for turning up on time)

Stephen O’Donnell

Had next to no defending duties so he spent most of the game up the park and, as with so many others, wondering how to find a way past ten opponents. A cross almost led to a goal. He was fine. 6

David Bates

He could have been known as the Scotland defender who let a San Marino player – you know, the world’s worst team - get past him to score. Bates got off with that one in the first-half. 5

Scott McKenna

The Aberdeen man didn’t break sweat because he didn’t need to. Won a few headers, put in challenges and that was it. 5

Andy Robertson

Watching the game was reminiscent of going to the dentist so he would have felt totally at home. The captain, to his credit, gives everything in games such as this as if they were a big Champions League match. 6

Stuart Armstrong

Denied a goal twice within a second by some brilliant goalkeeping in the first-half. Did a lot of running, then even more huffing and puffing. Rarely made a run into the box which is what he’s is excellent at. 5

Callum McGregor

A strangely quiet game for normally such an influential player. Bits and bobs was all he contributed. He didn’t seem sure exactly where he was playing. Subbed. 5

Kenny McLean

Early half-decent volley was followed by a perfect glancing header for his first Scotland goal. His passing both long and short was really good. This should get his international career up and running. 7

Johnny Russell

Admit it. You thought he’d made a mess of his goal when he didn’t soot first time. When his big moment came, the striker kept his cool when the rest of us shouted at him. Fair play. 6

Callum Paterson

A surprise starter but was going okay until he jarred his leg when landing after forcing a good save with a header. He went off before the break. Ironically, his injury came on grass. 5

Ryan Fraser

Started well but faded. Beat a few men, drew a couple of free-kicks and it was his cross which picked our McLean for his goal. His delivery from corners and open play wasn't good enough. To be fair, he always wanted to be involved. 6


Mark McNulty

Clever dummy lead to the second. But the Hibs man missed a great chance to score with a header. 5

Scott McTominay

Replaced McGregor and his contribution was a wild effort on goal. 5

James Forrest

He’s fast, has been good for Scotland and is bang in form. So, naturally he didn’t start. Good grief. Set-up the second with his first touch. 6
