@viola16: “How did we lose that? Passive at their goal and absence of a goalscorer. Clarke should be unhappy with the loss and our good run ending.”

@Gsinclair291: “After the Serbia game I can imagine the players are shattered. Win out next game and we’re all good.”

@l_b_burrows: “I think what we saw there was a masterclass in bus-parking from Slovakia, after we conceded a poor goal. And we need to learn how to deal with that. On to Israel.”

@clukey83: “Deflected goal. Two top class saves denied us. Second string team & were disappointed. Definitely getting better.”

@vinnylad: “Loved what Steve clarke done on thursday. But his selection decisions cost us the game today. Hopefully lesson learned, and not to be repeated.”

@HuddleHeroes: “Here...Tierney is world class eh? A would say he’s the best player Scotland has produced in many a year!”

@MarkLaw67: “Said it for ages now, Kieran Tierney is a much better lb for Scotland than Andy Robertson. Offers so much more for us.”

@Mmhalzz: “Could watch Ryan Christie play football all day, so easy on the eye.”

@muurphylab: “Celtic fans talk about the impact the likes of Dembele and Tierney leaving has on the club but can I point out how big of a loss Stuart Armstrong was to Celtic! Tireless player! #slosco”

@aboutceltic: “This isn't a dig at him but… What does Oliver McBurnie bring to the Scotland team? It isn't pace, it isn't link up play & it certainly isn't goals. He's purely in this team because of the price tag, the guy can't keep his place in the squad.”

@AFK103: “I don’t think McBurnie would get near Celtic or Rangers’ starting XI, and I don’t think Aberdeen would choose him over Cosgrove either. Hopefully ends his dry run against Israel, but he looks miles off it.”

@Popes_11: “This idea that fans slag McBurnie because he supports Rangers is f****** mental. Look at Ryan Jack f*** sake that guy gets credit for his performances because he actually plays well. Jack gets plaudits from most Celtic fans. McBurnie gets none of that coz he’s absolutely s****!”
