Charlie Mulgrew played the full 90 minutes as Scotland recorded a dramatic 2-2 draw in a memorable match against England.

The Rovers defender impressed throughout, as three goals in a crazy six-minute spell in the closing stages ensured it was honours even at Hampden Park.

Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring for the Three Lions with a sweet strike on 70 minutes, before two fantastic Leigh Griffiths free-kicks fired Scotland ahead as the clock ticked past the 90-minute mark.

But England captain Harry Kane equalised with a far post finish in the third minute of added time to rescue a point for Gareth Southgate’s side.

The late strike was a bitter blow to Scotland’s already dwindling World Cup qualifying hopes, as the result leaves them fourth in Group F, four points behind second-placed Slovakia.

Gordon Strachan’s side must now win their remaining four fixtures to stand any realistic chance of reaching the Russia finals next summer.
