'Wouldn't be a Scotland qualifier without mathematics and miracles', 'Adams and Fraser were our threats and both went off', 'Tierney at centre half is a waste': Tartan Army fans react to 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw in Israel

Scotland fans had their say after the 1-1 draw with Israel – and social media’s reaction was one of disappointment.

@lelmccallum: “Poor first half, better second half but need to play more attacking football, too many sideways passes when we could be breaking forward. Hopefully see improvements on Wednesday night. We draw or lose that and it’s over.”

Adzyfelly DeMonaco: “I thought they played well. Glad to see Scotland with a fighting spirit. In the past when we went behind... that was it!”

Lewis Murray: “Much better when we went four at the back.”

@p_stew1: “Tierney at centre half is a total waste, best player by a long way!”

George Waddell: “Maybe took Adams off too early, but had it in us to win it. Hope we don't regret that later on.”

@KilmarnockBible: “Really poor tonight. Not often I’ll disagree with Clarke but Adams and Fraser were our biggest threats and both went off. Long way back now.

@Yousaf_S_1987: “Poor first half. Better second half. As usual Scotland dropping points to the weaker teams in the group. Can Steve Clarke please go more attacking against Faroe Islands midweek?”

Iain Ferguson: “Wouldn’t be a Scotland qualifier unless we made sure it came down to miracles and mathematics in the final few games. Looks like we’re headed that way again!”

seandoc1967: “We've played them about 40 times in the last three years so we know they are bang average. So why sit off and defend for first half? As usual only play when we go behind, and zero surprise.......they are bang average.”

@gavinmannspage: “Austria and Denmark are the best teams in our group. We need three points in every game against Israel Moldova and Faroe Islands to stand a chance of qualifying. Hopefully a blip, but we have the players that can perform much better than this.

@kyleRC_: “Let’s have a glance at Denmark... 8-0. What’s our chances against them when we play like this against below average teams?

@KyleMurray91: “That’s the group done. We won't beat Austria away, they won't drop points to Israel and we are not getting anything from Denmark.”
