The 2-1 defeat to Wales on Friday left them bottom of Group A, 11 points behind the joint leaders Belgium and Croatia.

Scotland assistant manager McGhee says though that whilst their chances of qualifying for the World Cup are all-but over, the players should be in no doubt that the trip to Serbia is still important.

"There are 1200 fans going over expecting us to fight to the end. It isn't over, the chances are remote but we have to be determine," he said.

"The players will be given a clear way of playing and they will understand the importance of playing for their country.

"There will be changes, some enforced, but there are five World Cup qualifiers still to play and it is a wonderful opportunity for the players as well to prove to the manager that they are ready to be in the next campaign, so we expect a committed performance."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
