ALLY MCCOIST has lambasted the decision of the match officials to make Scotland wear their away shirt in their 1-0 victory against Slovakia last night.

The former-Rangers striker gave his opinion on the controversial decision by FIFA when he was asked on talkSPORT’s Breakfast Show by Barry Glendenning.

“I would possibly have refused, I have to be honest with you.

“We’re at home, Slovakia playing in white so therefore why can’t we put our blue strips on?”

McCoist suggested that the fact the Scots weren’t wearing their traditional blue shirts was the only negative in a spectacular night for Scottish football.

“It was the only downside of the whole evening for me, was watching us play in that strip.

“And this is coming from a man who used to put on some pretty poor and average strips in years gone by.

“But that has to go.”

In a fraught game, Scotland went ahead in the 89th minute through a Martin Skrtel own-goal. The victory leaves Scotland second in the group and we know that a victory away to Slovenia on Sunday will seal their place in the play-offs.
