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."

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.
