Angus Gunn 5

Could do nothing about Conor Bradley’s deflected opener and wasn’t called into action otherwise.

Nathan Patterson 4

Endured a difficult match. Gave up possession far too cheaply twice in the build-up to Bradley’s goal. That mistake appeared to play on his mind and while Patterson kept going, his final ball lacked all game.

Jack Hendry 5

Saw the opening goal take an unfortunate deflection off him on its way into the net. Lots of the ball but little incision in his passing. Missed a great chance at a late set-piece. 

Liam Cooper 5

Brought in for a rare start, the Leeds captain spent much of the game exchanging passes with his defensive partners. 

Kieran Tierney 6

Moved to left-back as Clarke made the shift to a back four when Robertson was forced off. Tried to drive his team forward and started to break behind the defensive line with a couple of dinked deliveries to the back post.

Andy Robertson 5

Forced off following a collision with Trai Hume in which he appeared to roll his ankle. The captain played on for a few minutes before he was replaced by Lewis Ferguson. 

Billy Gilmour 6

Gilmour did his utmost to raise a slow tempo in possession before the break. Always looked the most likely to offer a spark and his reverse pass for Ferguson after the hour was the type of moment required to unpick a defence. 

Scott McTominay 5

Without space to hit or cutbacks to attack, Scotland’s in-form final third threat was quiet. Often dropping deeper next to Gilmour in a bid to get his team moving. 

John McGinn 5

Quiet before the break with limited space to receive through the lines and few crosses to attack. Like McTominay, a below-par performance.

Ryan Christie 5

Was busy and energetic, often drifting wide to the left in an attempt to impact proceedings. Unable to get going when moved permanently to the left wing.

Lyndon Dykes 4

Cut an isolated figure all game, spare the odd dart behind the visiting defence. This game felt better fitted for Shankland or Adams’ game.


Lewis Ferguson (on for Robertson 37) 5

Many felt the Bologna midfielder merited a start and was Clarke’s first move from the bench. Passed up a good chance when Gilmour found his clever run before a late header was tipped over. 

Che Adams (on for Dykes 69) 4

Dropped to try and link play without much end product.

Kenny McLean (on for Gilmour 69)

Replaced Gilmour at the base of midfield. 

Stuart Armstrong (on for McGinn 77) 3

Unable to turn the final few minutes.

Lawrence Shankland (on for Christie 77) 3

An excellent chance from a corner was hit at a defender from close range.
