The three previous meetings between the two nations have all ended in draws, but Stimac is determined to claim three points from the Group A clash.

Stimac, whose side have 16 points from six games, said: "We are ready for the game.

"I know it's not an easy job for Gordon Strachan but we are going to make it even more difficult.

"There are no easy games. You have to earn it on the pitch.

"We are very serious about this game. We must not think that it's going to be easy. The Scottish team is a dangerous one.

"But I will not allow you to take points from here. I will do all necessary.

"We have never won a game against Scotland. Tradition is not on our side but we have to break it on Friday.

"I'm not sure who is going to play because we are expecting many changes in their team. Any analysis from the past games is useless.

"We are concentrating on our game and our players.

"I suppose they will try to defend themselves and do counter-attacks. We will see."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
