David Moyes favourite to replace under-fire Gordon Strachan at Scotland

That meant that Slovakia finish second in Group F but with only 12 adjusted points, leaving them in danger of being the one group runner-up to miss out in the play-offs.

Robert Snodgrass handed the visitors late hope with a well-taken goal minutes before the final whistle but Scotland were ultimately unable to salvage the victory needed to secure second place in the group.

"But the players in there, I've got to look after them".

"You have to ask that question but you know fine well that I'm going to say I'm the last person I'm thinking about now", said Strachan.

Other than the questionable team selection, unfaltering loyalty to under-performing players and a staunch refusal to give Leigh Griffiths - Scotland's best natural goalscorer - an adequate amount of game time over the course of the campaign, we're sure Scotland's stocky limbs were the critical issue in missing out on yet another major tournament.

"I'm a huge fan of Gordon Strachan".

Manager Gordon Strachan's future is unclear and there are members of the squad considering their worldwide futures before the inaugural Nations League and subsequent Euro 2020 campaign, with the latter not beginning until March 2019.

Gordon Strachan's men, who initially appeared slow to grasp the urgency of the situation, finally began to throw everything at the Slovenians in the final ten minutes, a tactic that culminated in an equaliser for Robert Snodgrass in the 87th minute. "I really have to thank them for the effort they have put in". But we took the lead.

"That's six games we've gone undefeated with a few good away results in there as well so we're playing well and getting those good results, we just left ourselves with too much to do", the Celtic goalkeeper added. But physically we have a problem. I can't just pick the biggest people in Scotland. If you played another player or another system, it might have been a lot worse.

Your team is getting over-run in midfield and the two players who are the most energetic (and they happen to be in the form of their lives) don't even get on as substitutes.

"We deserved to be beaten tonight because Slovenia were the better side".
