Scott McTominay hits out at Georgia
Following their 2-2 draw on Thursday, Scott McTominay hit out at the Georgia players for ‘crying like babies’ after Scotland battled to secure a draw.
Scotland had to come from behind twice just to earn a point as Khvicha Kvaratskhelia put the hosts in front on two occasions. McTominay cancelled the first strike out with his seventh goal of the qualifying campaign, before Lawrence Shankland netted an equaliser for Scotland in stoppage-time.
The Manchester United player was furious with the time wasting and play-acting from Georgia, admitting it was hard for Scotland to keep their cool in the circumstances:
“Tonight, the way they were acting on the pitch, I thought it was a disgrace,” McTominay told Viaplay Sports.
“In terms of provoking the referee and us as players as well, it’s not the way that it should go. Anyway, that’s football and that’s just sometimes the way it goes. We have to keep our heads, but it’s difficult.”
“They should do something about pretending they’re injured when they’re not and stuff like that. Rolling around crying like babies all afternoon, it’s not football.”
