Scots have edge thanks to Old Firm

Daily Record - - SCOTLAND -

SER­BIAN foot­ball leg­end Milo­van Doric has warned his com­pa­tri­ots not to un­der­es­ti­mate Scot­land as he points to the Euro­pean pedi­gree of Glas­gow’s big two.

Scot­land face the Serbs next month in a Euro 2020 play-off fi­nal in Bel­grade and the hosts will be warm favourites to go through.

But Doric in­sists the Scots shouldn’t be taken lightly given Celtic and Rangers’ pres­ence in con­ti­nen­tal com­pe­ti­tion.

He said: “Scot­land is much more of a foot­ball coun­try than our semi-fi­nal op­po­nents Nor­way. How many clubs in Nor­way have you heard of achiev­ing any­thing in Europe?

“But Scot­land have Celtic and Rangers in Europe ev­ery year and they win some im­por­tant matches in the Cham­pi­ons League and Europa League.

“Scot­tish foot­ball has a proud history and we can’t go into this game think­ing it is al­ready won.”
