Scotland face Georgia this Friday night looking to boost their chances of Euro 2016 qualification.

With group favourites Germany and Poland facing off in Frankfurt, the Scots are in Tbilisi aiming to close the gap at the top of Group D.

The Scots sit two points behind Germany in third place, and with the top two countries guaranteed a place in next summer's finals in France, Gordon Strachan's side can do their chances no harm with victory over Georgia this evening, something Rovers star Grant Hanley is really looking forward to.

"It is always brilliant going away with the national team and getting the opportunity to play against big teams," said the Rovers captain.

"It is great, it is something I am really looking forward to.

"We've given ourselves a great chance, we have done really well and performances and results have been good for us.

"All we can hope for is to put ourselves in a good position and give ourselves an opportunity to qualify, so who knows what can happen?

We've just got to take it game-by-game and try and pick up some points along the way."

Following this evening's game Scotland return home to prepare for the big clash at Hampden against Germany on Monday night.
