Scotland outdid themselves yesterday afternoon with a frankly appalling performance away at Kazakhstan.
The Kazakhs had only won about four games in competitive football in recent times and so, of course, we obliged to give them three points with what was arguably the worst international performance I’ve seen from us – and that is saying something.
They looked like strangers that had met in the park, and Callum McGregor – skipper for the game – simply did not get a hold of things.
I like Callum, and I like what he brings, but he had a honker out there and it is a worrying sign, again, of the mentality – or lack of it – that some of our players have.
In Europe, we have melted as a football club several times before and clearly, that is happening on the international stage.
It’s something that we need to address – though how we actually do it remains to be seen.
