Well, at least we finished well. The Scotland team finished the Euro 2016 qualifiers with a 6 – 0 drubbing of Gibraltar.

Beating the minnows of the group is not the greatest of feats. And noone is going to be remembered for their part in the victory. But it is something. And, to be fair to them, the Scotland squad did everything we expected of them in Gibraltar.

I’m gutted! Another international competition, another failed attempt to qualify. Needing to win to have any chance of getting to the Euro 2016 finals, a draw was of absolutely no use whatsoever.

The Scotland team put on a decent performance. And perhaps they deserved to win, being ‘robbed’ by the final kick of the match. But that doesn’t seem to help.
