Mark Burns: “No loss, sitting 2nd. We always start poorly, having to scrape it back. But this is ok. Yes we didn't beat a poor Austria, but a few years ago they would have picked up three cheap points from us. A point against Israel away from home, a team that knows us better than any other in the group. As I say, three games, no loss, five points and sitting in second.”

Steven Ross: “Good result. But play like that against England and we will get murdered. Got away with alot of mistakes. Hopefully thats them out the way before the Euros.”

@Zubster90: “Solid performance. Che upfront reminds us Kenny Miller days that run in behind.”

John McGinn was Mr Popular after his two goals.

@Gadgebalfour: “Wish McGinn got hat-trick and Tierney is some player top lad plays his heart out.”

@dw_RH11: “John McGinn, the Scottish Iniesta.”

@robin_chambers9: “Tierney and Robertson, McGinn and McTominay and Adams upfront, Scotland finally looking like having a really decent spine through the team now. Big questions who else plays centre half, right back, Fraser looked sharp.”

There was a lot of praise for Kieran Tierney after three assists from defence.

@bhavss14: “Kieran Tierney has a hat-trick of assists from left centre back in a back three? Scotland’s finest left back for a reason.”

@MfcTid: “R9 and Roberto Carlos are the Brazilian McGinn and KT.”

Phil Donald: “Tierney was excellent. Thought McTominay played a great game. Didn’t think any of them had a bad game but still think McBurnie should be nowhere near the squad.”

David Alexander McGregor: “Can we just put KT into attacking mid. Great result, really wish we had got the points from Israel, still sitting in a nice position.”

Martin Kinsler: “Mikel Arteta has turned Tierney into a monster and we are so going to benefit from this.”
