Gordon Strachan hails "fantastic" Gordon Greer, Steven Whittaker

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan reserves special praise for Gordon Greer and Steven Whittaker after he brought them into his side for tonight's 2-2 draw with Poland.

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has heaped praise on the two replacements he brought in for tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier against Poland in Warsaw.

Gordon Greer and Steven Whittaker replaced Grant Hanley and Andrew Robertson in the side, helping Scotland to a surprise 2-2 draw against the Group D leaders.

Strachan joked that Greer's performance belied his physical appearance, while also praising the level of consistency and solidity provided by Whittaker.

"Gordon Greer was fantastic. He looks nothing like a footballer. He looks like a rock star who has turned up at a testimonial game, but he was absolutely fantastic," Strachan told reporters.

"Steven Whittaker - you just put him in and know what you're going to get. If you picked 10 Steven Whittakers, sleep would be easier the night before a game."

The result means that Scotland now have four points in Group D, leaving them three behind joint leaders Poland and the Republic of Ireland.
