Scotland flew in early to Astana and insisted they stayed on British time as part of their preparations.
But instead of getting their Euro 2020 campaign off to a good start, the Scots suffered abject humiliation after they were destroyed 3-0.
And Borodyuk - predecessor to current manager Michal Bilek - reckons the Scots treated their hosts with contempt.
He said: “The result came as no surprise to me whatsoever. We have worked towards a score like this for many years and it was totally deserved.
“When you arrive in a country like Kazakhstan overconfident - which is exactly what Scotland were - then you usually suffer embarrassment and get punished.
“I read some of the interviews before the game of the Scottish players and staff and you would think they were facing a team of village idiots.
“But I don’t want this result to be about the failings of Scotland - it was all about how good Kazakhstan were.
“There is a new generation of talented players from Kazakhstan and Scotland found that to their cost.
“Michal Bilek has clearly done an excellent job already and I wish him nothing but the best of luck.”
