One eight, but a few fives...

Shot-stopper could do nothing about either goal but pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the scoreline down. Can be pleased with his display.
Hit the post early on but looked unconvincing at times and questions have to be asked about his positioning for the attack that led to Russia's second

Part of a defence easily opened up time and again by the Russians but popped up with some vital interceptions in the first half
Performed well enough on his debut against stern opposition but didn't look too clever at Russia's second
Linked up well with Fraser in the first half but gifted ball to Dzyuba for the equaliser and found his attacking opportunities limited in the second half as Russia stepped up the pressure
Toiled a bit in midfield and was unusually wasteful from set-pieces. Shifted out wide late on but yielded no joy.
Started well with an off-target effort and then his goal but faded badly along with the rest of the team. Replaced by McLean.
Lovely cross for the opener but Russia got to grips with the Bournemouth man as the game wore on and kept him quiet. Gave ball away for Russia's second.
An unusually quiet performance from the Celtic winger. Made a mess of a break in the first half and was hooked on the hour.
Started well and got stuck in in the first half, but found Golovin a tricky opponent in the second half. Subbed on 78 minutes
Put himself about and did well to distract Guilherme ahead of the opener, but lacked service throughout the game. Perked up a bit following introduction of Christie.
On for Forrest. Skied an effort and got booked for a necessary foul on Dzyuba as the Russians looked to counter-attack
Injected some fresh impetus and had a 20-yard effort saved by Guilherme. Cameo will give Steve Clarke something to think about ahead of Belgium clash
Posed a threat up front after replacing McTominay as Clarke sought an equaliser.
