Matt can Phil void

Run Scot­land like Barca

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

MALKY MACKAY has de­fended the per­for­mance of Matt Phillips dur­ing the 1-0 de­feat to Hol­land.

The care­taker Scot­land boss thinks the West Brom winger can be an al­ter­na­tive choice to in­jured Leigh Grit­tiths, de­spite not looking com­fort­able in the role.

Mackay said: “I thought he ran him­self into the ground and did the un­sung work.

“He was gut­ted not to score be­cause he should have, but if you ask the two Dutch cen­tre-backs was it an easy night against Matt then I don’t think so.”
