Also, I’ve said it before but Callum McGregor needs to be starting every game. Outstanding.

Thought Armstrong added loads of energy in the second half too. Probably should have scored but Callum mcgregor and how he finds space on the park? Sensational

Armstrong was a one season wonder then he made a mistake against England. He was decent tonight but honestly, Callum McGregor is the better player.

The Celtic midfielder always divides opinion. While he is simply adored by the Bhoys fans, he is not always appreciated by non-Celtic fans.
McGregor has improved immensely under Brendan Rodgers, and his performance against Albania shows his class and quality.
Alongside the likes of John McGinn and Kevin McDonald, Scotland’s midfield trio involving McGregor looks a solid unit. He has a very good positional sense and his control over the ball is of the highest class.
