Mulgrew opened his international account as Scotland secured their first win under Strachan, who was appointed to the role last month.

The Celtic defender converted Charlie Adam's free-kick seven minutes before the break at Pittodrie and Strachan's side went on to secure the victory.

Asked about working under Scotland's new manager, Mulgrew told Sky Sports: "It's been good, been different, some new ideas in there."

He added: "It was difficult conditions...the most important thing was getting the win so we are happy.

"It is good to get that winning spirit - hopefully we can go on and get more wins."

Burke was making his first Scotland appearance since 2006 and he said: "It's been excellent, him (Strachan) and his coaching staff...I've learned so much so it's great to be amongst it all.

"It was excellent, I was happy with my performance - all round the team did well."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
