Scott Brown was happy to be on another winning Scotland side after Tuesday night’s narrow defeat of Norway.

The Celtic star skippered the Scots to a 1-0 victory over the Norwegians, scoring the only goal of the contest, in what was a hard-fought affair in Molde.

After the match, Brown was happy to be part of a grinding win although he did admit to an element of luck in his 61st-minute goal.

"The lads fought and battled all the way,” he told BBC Scotland.

"We didn't play at our best – we know that – but we got the result and that's what we came for."

He added: "We got a wee bit of luck with the deflection.

"It was one of those ones - I just hit it and hoped. It was a deflection but it went into the back of the net and that's all that matters."
