McCulloch admits relief as Scotland leave it late

Lee McCulloch admits Scotland's players were relieved to scrape a 2-1 win against Liechtenstein. Questions would have been asked of boss Craig Levein had Stephen McManus' 97th-minute winner not prevented the Scots from suffering one of their worst ever results at Hampden against a nation ranked 100 places lower.

McCulloch said: "The players are relieved we got the win, for the group, for ourselves and for the manager as well. He is so organised and he puts his neck on the line at times and he's not scared to make a decision. I think that shows through.

"The boys are just delighted they've got the win for him. I thought we dominated the game but they frustrated us, they sat in and made it hard for us to pass the ball around and we are just glad we got the goal in the end."
