Charlie Mulgrew reflected on a good week away with Scotland, where he played his part in his country's UEFA Nations

Mulgrew appeared in the friendly defeat against a star-studded Belgium side at Hampden Park, but helped Alex McLeish's side get back on track a few days later against the Albanians with a 2-0 win.
 
And reflecting on the week, the 32-year-old was content with how it went north of the border.
 
“The Albania game was the most important game, we all knew that before the game," Mulgrew said.
 
“It was great to play against one of the best teams in the world in Belgium but the important games are the Qualifiers. We won our first one and that’s put us in a decent place at the moment.
 
“We’re going to be doing all we can to win more qualifiers."
 
Following a short stint as captain of his country, Liverpool left back Andy Roberton has earned the armband full time, and it's a decision that Mulgrew accepts.
 
“Robbo’s a top player and a good guy who is a good choice to be the captain of Scotland," he added.
 
"We’re all with him, we’re all behind him and we’ll be looking forward with him leading.
 
“I never took the captaincy for granted. It was great to captain my country. It was a game at a time whilst the manager was finding his feet. He said it was never a permanent captaincy appointment."
