Rovers duo sit out final qualifiers

12 October 2015

Neither Corry Evans or Grant Hanley were involved in the last round of Euro 2016 qualifiers for Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Evans played no part as Michael O'Neill's side ended their successful qualifying campaign by topping their group after a 1-1 draw in Finland.

Craig Cathcart headed the visitors in front in the first half, and although the Fins levelled three minutes from time Paulus Arajuuri, the point was enough to see Northern Ireland finish as Group F winners.

Scotland ended their unsuccessful qualifying campaign with a 6-0 away win over Gibraltar.

Grant Hanley watched on from the substitute's bench as first half goals from Chris Martin and Shaun Maloney, were added to by a second half hat-trick by Steven Fletcher and a Steven Naismith goal in injury time.

In Reykjavik, Mark Edgar played the full match for Northern Ireland's Under-19s as they avenged Friday's 2-0 loss against Iceland, with a 1-0 victory.
