Video: Scott McTominay on Scotland’s unbeaten run, the rain, and his goal

Scott McTominay spoke to Viaplay’s media team after Scotland’s 2-0 win over Georgia last night and insisted that nobody in the Scotland set-up is getting ahead of themselves – that’s despite being eight points clear at the top of Group A as it stands. Four wins out of four have saw the Scots sky-rocket to the summit of a tricky Euros qualifying section that includes Spain and Erling Brut Haaland’s Norway.

After downing Spain at Hampden Park a short while ago, we travelled to Oslo and came from a goal behind in sweltering heat to grab a 2-1 victory on the road in what has been one of the best Scotland away performances of modern times. The Tartan Army haven’t half had it bad for so long but it looks as if it could be about to change for them, if recent results are anything to go by.

McTominay was obviosuly delighted to play his part yet again and score for the third game in succession for his country, which hadn’t been achieved since Kris Boyd back in 2007. Clearly happy with his goal, the English-born Scotsman was drenched to the bone but that didn’t look to have affected him in the slightest, such is his commitment to the cause.

He was steadfast in his belief that this group of Scotland players can do special things but that they are still at the beginning of a very long journey that will hopefully end in Germany come next summertime. Even though we got another crucial victory, the midfielder was subdued and insisted more hard work has to be done to ensure we achieve our potential.

About Author

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
