Gordon Strachan celebrated Scotland’s 1-0 win over Georgia at Ibrox on Saturday evening, by describing it as best game of his Scotland reign.

Strachan said: “That’s the best hour, 65 minutes that we’ve had as a football team since I’ve been here,” said the Scotland manager. I didn’t know the players could play that type of free-flowing football, with such ease, and break down a good side.”

Despite Scotland having the majority of possession, they failed to add to their tally in part to poor finishing but also some good saves from Georgian keeper Giorgi Loria.

And with that 1-0 lead as the game neared its conclusion, the home supporters began to get nervous as Georgia pushed forward for an equaliser.

Strachan added: “I don’t care who you are – if you’re only 1-0 up with five or ten minutes to go, then it starts getting a bit hairy. They threw people forward. And, to that extent, I thought our two centre halves were absolutely fantastic.”
