Russell Martin is of the belief that a healthy competition for starting positions has the Scotland national team in a much improved position.
"It's good for the manager. He knows he has got players he can rely on in every position now, not just centre-half," he said.
"If you look at the squad, we have two players - at least two players - who can play in every position. So that means we are confident in the team we are putting out there and confident of getting a result."
