An injury to Leigh Griffiths and a great pass from Stuart Armstrong are the main talking points for the six Celts who featured in Scotland's 1-0 win over Slovenia.

Griffiths hit the bar with the goal gaping and then hit the post with a fine strike before getting a knee in the back and coming off injured just before half-time. Naturally we'll keep you updated on his injury.

The only goal came after 88 minutes, a Chris Martin shot in off the post, Stuart Armstrong's pin-point pass providing the assist, a Scotland debut to remember for the in-form midfielder.

Scott Brown had a poor game by his very high standards of this season, his passing was lacking on occasion. However, Kieran Tierney had a great game, constantly providing an attacking threat and doing well defensively, and all this playing out of position. James Forrest didn't really do that much, same from Craig Gordon in the Scotland goal.
