Here's an assessment of how the Scottish squad performed in their first game under Billy Stark:

Matt Gilks - Good handling overall and left with no chance from Lars Gerson's free-kick. Was busier than he might have anticipated. 7

Steven Whittaker - The right-back could not get forward as much as he would have liked. 6

Paul Dixon - Always looking to overlap, the Huddersfield full-back sent over some decent crosses including one which led to the opener. 6

Christophe Berra - The Wolves defender's experience was needed in the second half. 6

Grant Hanley - Looked unsure at times on the ground and gave away several free-kicks in dangerous positions in the air. 5

Charlie Mulgrew - The Celtic player imposed himself in central midfield and kept possession well before making way at half-time. 7

Darren Fletcher - Some slack passing initially and was lacking support in the heart of midfield after the break. 6

Andrew Shinnie - The debutant gave away the ball on his first few attacks but played a crucial part in the second goal. 5

Steven Naismith - Did not find it easy to get into the game and was frustrated by some hefty tackles in the second half. 5

Jordan Rhodes - Has a knack of being in the right place as he scored a double to take his Scotland tally to three. Only an offside flag denied him a hat-trick. 8

Kenny Miller - Linked up well at times up front before being moved wide right for the last 20 minutes. 6


Liam Kelly - The Kilmarnock midfielder's foul seconds into his Scotland debut led to the Luxembourg goal and had most of his work to do just inside his own half. 5

Leigh Griffiths - Came on in the 70th minute for his debut but only had one brief sight of goal with an ambitious volley that flew wide. 5

Murray Davidson - Brought on for an injury-time debut.
