Pre-match shoot: Wee Gordon Strachan is still in charge for another campaign, and it’s not yet clear if the emergence of the likes of Chris Burke and our own Barrie McKay will prevent him from deploying the same old shite as usual. Perhaps there is some hope - Scott Brown has thankfully retired from international football, Shaun Maloney was left out, twice, Robert Snodgrass is back and the new lads are pushing through. We should in theory be attacking a team well below our level, and need someone with the outstanding range and weight of passing and capacity for magic as McKay to unlock the opposition defence. But it is still Strachan, so expect a terrible performance and McKay to get about five minutes at most.
