Kieran Tierney

Steady enough and took up a more advanced role in the second half after Robertson's injury

Angus Gunn

Helpless for the opener. Wasn't overly worked

Nathan Patterson

Almost got away with loose possession in the first half but committed another error which led to a goal.

Liam Cooper

Surprise starter. Almost caught out by a Shea Charles run and was on his heels more than once

Jack Hendry

Another left backpedall­ing after the Northern Ireland goal which deflected off him, having been steady beforehand

Andy Robertson

Rarely troubled before an injury prevented him from taking any further part of the first half just after half-an-hour

Scott McTominay

Rifled a shot towards goal in the only attacking chance of note in the first half. Faded in influence

Billy Gilmour

Didn't dictate play quite like he did in spells of the Netherland­s friendly

Ryan Christie

Couldn't find a way to cut Northern Ireland open in the first half and second half didn't get much better

John McGinn

Tenacious but left frustrated by a stubborn Northern Irish backline

Lyndon Dykes

Brings a chaos factor in attack but end product and clinical finishing elusive

SUB Lewis Ferguson

Grew in stature and missed a chance at the near post, before a header came agonisingl­y close.

SUB Che Adams

Replaced Dykes. Couple of nice runs but no chances of note

SUB Kenny McLean

Took the place of Gilmour and didn't have much impact on the game

SUB Lawrence Shankland

Given just over 13 minutes to strut his stuff, with a good chance blocked

SUB Stuart Armstrong

On late to try and provide a creative spark
