Andy Robertson has issued a response to critics who laid into his performance for Scotland on Thursday.
Robertson played the full game as captain as Scotland were beaten 2-1 by Israel in the UEFA Nations League.
The Liverpool left-back was widely criticised for his ineffective performance, and admits that “I wasn’t good enough”.
He believes that having to play at left wing-back, with fellow left-back Kieran Tierney pushed to the left-sided centre-half in a back three, is to blame.
“Both of us are out of position,” Robertson told BBC Scotland. “So it’s two positions we need to try and learn.
“We’ve played there before but we need to learn it in this system. Unfortunately, that will take time. Both of us want to play left-back and there isn’t that slot just now.
“The gaffer has looked at it and wants to get me and KT down the left. I’ve got to start a lot higher and I don’t have a winger to play with. From that point of view, it is a lot harder. I won’t speak for Kieran, but I wasn’t good enough.”
