Scotland boss Gordon Strachan feeling 'nervous excitement' ahead of Georgia game

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan admits to feeling 'nervous and excited' ahead of the team's important Euro 2016 qualifier away to Georgia.

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan has admitted that he is feeling 'nervous and excited' by the team's crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Georgia.

The Scots currently sit in third place in the Group D table, three points behind leaders Poland.

Strachan and his players know that they must win tomorrow night in order to keep their qualification hopes alive, but the former midfielder insists that he is relishing the challenge.

"I have had it all the way through my career when approaching good games that I look forward to, there is a nervous excitement," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"So we are in the same boat [as the fans], they are getting what we are getting. It doesn't mean we are apprehensive, it doesn't mean we are scared, it means we are looking forward to it."

Scotland beat Georgia 1-0 when the teams met at Hampden Park last October.
