Have your say

Malky Mackay has picked an unusual Scotland team to face the Netherlands at Norway, with Ryan Jack at full-back and Matt Phillips in attack.

However, there was a more popular move in the form of Kieran Tierney being made captain.

Here’s how the supporters reacted on Twitter.

@talkingbaws: Kieran Tierney getting the captain’s armband tonight just shows how far he’s came as a player over the past 12 months! Hoping the players making their debuts tonight make as big an impact on the Scotland set up as he has!

@VileCybernat83: Massive game for fans of the Scottish national team tonight. Can’t see past Switzerland myself.

@muz1881: Anyone playing in their natural position for Scotland tonight?

@EvanMcFarlane: Kieran Tierney is 20, playing Champions League football and captaining his country, meanwhile I still get my maw to phone the doctors for me

@SartoMutiny: Tonight’s Scotland game sees Ryan Christie on the left, Kieran Tierney in the middle and the manager on the far right #SCONED

@Callum_TH: Wasnae going to bother watching this but will now be engrossed at that absolute disaster of a team

@timomouse: That is a team which makes me glad Mackay won’t be permanent. Jack RB, Tierney CB, Christie LW. Malky’s been on the Bucky

@SkySports_Keith: Scotland love a left footed player these days. I make that 8 of the 11 without Griffiths, Cummings & Mulgrew.

@BenjyPalmer: Kieran Tierney captaining Scotland at 20 is remarkable. He was a teenager at the start of the year. Great achievement.

@AidenWylie: Five out of nine subs are defenders. Two defenders are starting out of position.

@_dcconnor: Did Malky Mackay get Rod Stewart to pick that team?

@davidstoker_lfc: I’m not sure there’s ever been a full Scotland international match I’ve given less of a s*** about than tonight’s non event against Holland.

@Oldfirmfacts1: “Any suggestion that I’m pandering to the Pittodrie crowd is ridiculous” insists Malky Mackay, as he names a midfield three of Kenny McLean, Ryan Christie and Eoin Jess
