2. Change the Formation

The 3-5-2 formation was clearly created with the sole purpose of finding a way to accommodate two of Scotland’s best players on a consistent basis – Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney.

However, their inclusion comes at a price, with James Forrest struggling to find a role in the team.

It can only be viewed as a huge mistake on McLeish’s part to leave the Celtic winger out of the starting eleven against Israel, especially after he netted four goals against St Johnstone.

While their talents are unquestionable, neither Tierney nor Robertson have really impressed in the new shape… not to a degree where the exclusion of an in-form player can be allowed at least.

A formation which would allow Forrest and Ryan Fraser to focus on attacking, use their shared pace and feed Griffiths would surely get Scotland fans back on side.
