The 25-year old Watford winger, who made his international debut in Friday's loss to Belgium, netted a wonderful goal in the 60th minute of Scotland's eventual 2-1 World Cup qualifying victory and his showing certainly was not lost on an excited Strachan.
"Ikechi was good, wasn't he?" said the Scotland boss.
"I thought he was terrific. He brought us that wee extra turn of pace, was a threat and made them worry up front."
"But I thought Naismith up front was terrific. Maloney too. We didn't have a failure," he added.
