Strachan hails Norwich star

Last Updated: Wed, 16 Oct 2013 16:21

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan was delighted with the efforts of Robert Snodgrass in an unfamiliar role following the win over Croatia.

Snodgrass put Scotland ahead with a first-half header before Steven Naismith put the result beyond doubt in the second-half as the Scots completed their World Cup qualification campaign with a 2-0 home win over Croatia.

The Norwich winger played in a more central role in the absence of Shaun Maloney and Strachan was happy with Snodgrass' performance on Tuesday.

"Robert played an unusual role for him," he told the Edinburgh Evening News. "We were short of strength in attacking positions but Robert did well in there. He got a wonderful goal and hit the post and did a lot of good things."
