Scotland manager

Steve Clarke

Steve Clarke served both St Mirren and Chelsea with distinction as a defender and was capped six times for Scotland.

His coaching career started when he served as an assistant to both his former Chelsea team-mate Ruud Gullit and Bobby Robson at Newcastle, before he returned to Stamford Bridge in 2004 to be Jose Mourinho’s number two.

Clarke managed West Brom, Reading and Kilmarnock before taking the Scotland job in 2018.

Scotland captain

Andy Robertson

Andy Robertson’s journey to be Scotland captain has been a storybook voyage after making his league debut for Queen’s Park and then joining Dundee United.

The left-back then moved to England to play for Hull but his career took off after he joined Liverpool, where he has become both a Premier League and Champions League winner.

Robertson has also won the League Cup twice and the FA Cup during his time at Anfield.

Scotland key players

John McGinn

Aston Villa skipper John McGinn brings dynamism to the Scotland midfield and can be relied upon to provide any talented opponent with plenty to think about.

The former St Mirren and Hibernian star joined Villa in 2018, helping them to win the Championship playoffs and has been an integral part of Unai Emery’s side who secured a top-four spot in this season’s Premier League.

Billy Gilmour

Billy Gilmour has been hailed as one of the most talented players to come out of Scotland for years and this neat midfielder still has the potential to do great things in the game.

He burst onto the scene at Chelsea and had a successful loan spell at Norwich, but he was unable to nail down regular football as he competed with a star-studded Stamford Bridge squad.

The 22-year-old has settled in at Brighton and is a mainstay in Scotland's midfield.

Scott McTominay

Scott McTominay is not an automatic first-team choice at Manchester United despite cropping up with plenty of key goals for the Red Devils, and he was Scotland’s top goalscorer in the Euros qualification campaign with seven goals.

He has been pushed into a more attacking role for the national team and that has reaped dividends, so expect him to be pushing into forward positions at every opportunity in Germany, particularly as he is guaranteed to start for Clarke’s side.

Scotland one to watch

Lawrence Shankland

Every team at the Euros will hope to unearth a surprise package and Scotland’s could be Hearts striker Lawrence Shankland.

The 28-year-old is finally making headlines after years in the Scottish lower divisions with many loan spells after previously joining Aberdeen from his first club, Queen’s Park.

Scotland’s Euro 2024 prospects

An opening game against hosts Germany is a tough proposition and anything from that game would be a massive bonus.

Positive results against Hungary and Switzerland are perhaps more realistic and getting out of the group and making the knockout stage for the first time would be regarded as a success after so many near misses down the years.
