Scotland fans react on Twitter to Hull defender Andy Robertson's performance v England

Scotland Football

Scotland fans took to Twitter on Tuesday night to react to Hull City left-back Andy Robertson's performance in the 3-1 home defeat to England.

Scotland fell 3-1 to England in their international friendly at Celtic Park on Tuesday night, as Wayne Rooney struck twice to ensure the Three Lions remain unbeaten north of the border since 1985.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring just after the half-hour when he nodded home an excellently placed long ball from Jack Wilshere, before the skipper gave the visitors a 2-0 lead early in the second-half after the Scotland defence failed to clear James Milner’s free-kick.

It was not all plain sailing for Roy Hodgson’s side, as left-back Andy Robertson pulled one back for the Tartan Army with seven minutes to go, but a quick and emphatic reply from Rooney extinguished any brief hopes of a fight back.

Gordon Strachan’s side looked somewhat jaded after their efforts in the 1-0 Euro 2016 qualifying win over the Republic of Ireland on Friday, and the manager admitted after the match that they were not at their best on the night.

"That's as good as I've seen England play in a while; maybe we were mentally fatigued from Friday," he told the BBC.

"We've let ourselves down, to be honest with you. But we've not let ourselves down over the 10 days, this game we have. We're disappointed with our performance.

"But we got what we wanted, the three points in our group against the Republic of Ireland."

One player who didn’t look quite as jaded as the rest, however, was goal-scorer Robertson, with the Hull City defender easily the home team’s standout performer thanks to his determined outing on the left flank.

The 20-year-old was making only his fifth appearance for Scotland, but the signs certainly point towards him having a bright international future, with fans taking to Twitter during and after the match to sing his praises.
