Robertson sure Scots will build on heavy victory


By Ronnie Esplin

Captain Andy Robertson hopes Scotland's comfortable 6-0 victory over minnows San Marino can be a springboard as they look to build momentum ahead of the Nations League play-offs.

A first-half John McGinn hat-trick and goals from Lawrence Shankland, Stuart Findlay and Stuart Armstrong saw Scotland return to winning ways in style following a run of four straight losses in European Championship qualifying Group I.

Liverpool defender Robertson said: "Only time will tell but I really hope that now we can kick on. I know it's only against San Marino and I'm sure a lot of people - the negative people - will say that but it wasn't about our opponents, it was about how we went about our business and I thought we did it brilliantly.

"When you have a fragile squad and a squad that's low on confidence then it's always tough. Hopefully this result will kick all of us on."
