Strewth!

Rumour has it Nigeria were paid to throw the game, but with good old Hanley in defence, it was like trying to miss an open goal.

At least he didn't get a red card I suppose.

No Rhodes?

An £8 million striker who can't get a game for possibly the worst Scotland side in living memory?

Pmsl.

Wonder if DJ knew that was going to happen ?

He also sent a clearance straight into an attacker for Nigeria's equaliser.Where was our star striker in all this I was sure Goodwillie would get a game.

Eh, excuse me. This is possibly the best Scotland side since the fateful Berti Vogts reign. Also, Rhodes is hardly ever in a Scotland squad beyond the first training session. He always pulls out with some niggle, which never bothers me too much really because he is just doing it so he is fit for Rovers. Would love to see him stay fit and committed enough to Scotland as he is the best natural finisher we have and with Steven Naismith I'm sure could be pretty lethal in the upcoming Euro Qualifiers. Aiming for a playoff spot behind Germany
